SMEs & eLEARNING
The project aims to promote the transfer of innovative training practices from formal educational institutions to SMEs. Due to the fact that SMEs need tailored training, fit for their needs, it is important to offer alternative forms of training, such as e-learning. For this purpose, the increasing use of e-learning in education allows SMEs to organise their learning, in their own time and space at low cost. The “SME e-Learning Portal” is developed to ensure that innovative training practices are shared and made accessible to SME employees and Managers throughout Europe. The aim is to emphasize the importance of e-learning and blended learning as accessible and economically viable alternatives to traditional and often costly training practices, and to ensure that e-learning training materials are accessible and fit for purpose.
VITECO is co-lead partner for the ICT field, being in charge for the development of a “SME eLearning Guide” and a “SME eLearning Portal”. The first one assisted SMEs and their employees when considering including e-learning as part of their training portfolio. The second one is constituted by a collaborative platform, e-learning courses, online web-seminars and a dedicated social network.
