Marketing Text Considering the evaluation results and feedback from the partners, the guidelines for further development and implementation of the developed educational methodology and specifications for e-learning in industry (in-house training) are given.
Within E-PRAGMATIC project a specifications/methodology for integral concept for lifelong training for electro-mechanical industry in the area of mechatronics and alternative technologies was developed and tested. The concept applies distance training by using multimedia e-learning materials and remote experiments. Self-directed learning is supported by an intensive, individual mentoring based on the andragogy principles. Users are practicing professionals - employees from industry, who need to refresh or gain knowledge, and enterprises, who want to enhance their in-house training.
To ascertain concrete knowledge needs and education habits of the end users a comprehensive international needs analysis was conducted. Data was collected by an e-survey and in interviews with enterprises’ management. Based on the results of the analysis and recommendations of experts for distance and adult learning, following elements of the suggested integral concept were developed:
• learning management system,
• model for presentation of learning materials,
• andragogical educational approach, and
• training modules and programs from mechatronics and alternative technologies.
Target group Educators in industry, educators of adults
