First TACCLE IST course Urbino April 2010

Hosted by Jens Vermeersch

Creating your own e-learning content in school education and adult education
Course reference: BE-2010-121-001

With this in-service training our aim is to help teachers to develop state of the art content for elearning in general and for learning environments in particular.

We try to achieve this by training teachers to create elearning materials and raising their awareness of elearning in general. TACCLE will help to establish a culture of innovation in the schools in which they work. The training is geared to the needs of the classroom teachers but teacher trainers, ICT support staff and resource centre staff may find it useful too!
