Product Type teaching material
The main goal of the SkillsUp learning system is to enable educational activation to persons
wishing to develop or improve their competencies in Drywall Systems Technologies.
Professional education courses based on modules allow relatively quick acquisition of
knowledge by low-skilled persons or allow updating acquired skills to a level corresponding
to new developments in production and services. Following this approach, the e-package on
DryWall Technologies maintained by the SkillsUp learning platform has been built in a
modular structure consisting of 5 learning units, where each unit is presenting a theme of
interest in the domain. Each unit is divided in smaller modules named learning chapters. A
learning chapter in a unit consists of several theoretical lessons and one revision lesson.
Two additional sections in each unit are treating pedagogical issues as the prerequisite and
learning outcomes corresponding to the current unit.
A lesson is an elementary piece of information treating a small subject in the current
chapter’s theme. Lessons are consisting of short textual presentations combined with
drawings or images that illustrate specific tools, profiles, building elements, procedural task
or activities in drywall systems technologies. Lessons structure is simple and clear and could
help learners to easily achieve competences objectives.
There is no limit of time to complete a lesson or any other part of the teaching material on the
SkillsUp platform. Each learner will study in his own rhythm of understanding.
The SkillsUp learning system is providing users with access to 80 theoretical lessons, 11
revision lessons and 10 pedagogical sections. Over 150 graphics and images are completing
the instructional content in SkillsUp e-package.
The SkillsUp e-package has been translated from Polish to English, Romanian and Italian.
A complete, independent SkillsUp learning platform has been implemented in each language
in the consortium: English, Polish, Italian, and Romanian.
The educational purpose of lessons is to transfer knowledge in an efficient way.
Upon completion of the learning material and the practical tasks, the learner should be able
to identify the used materials, to install partition walls, to install wall lining systems, to install
dropped ceiling systems and to perform finish operations for the drywall systems.
