The ELSS project aims at creating a more flexible and effective educational solution in C-VET: an online system supporting the transfer of learning effects into the workplace. The solution designed within the project has significant signs of innovation in its approach to learning, addressing not only the training event but also learner preparation to learn and post learning activities.
The goal is increasing the effectiveness of implementation of newly developed skills, gained during trainings organized by companies for their employees at the same time fostering mainstreaming and spreading the utilisation of open and innovative education.
The system will be an innovation for the target group, who uses rather dispersed learning support solutions, not as extensive and thorough as the planned one.
Furthermore, it will give companies the opportunity to upload their content and use the system in connection with their in house training activities, while available systems are only built around the trainings offered by external providers. Open access to the system will reduce costs of training initiatives in companies, especially when based on e-learning modules owned by companies to which the system can be linked, apart from classroom trainings. This can lead to higher availability of trainings in companies, enhancing access to training for a greater number of employees (savings in time and money). The Partnership fosters synergy between business and research and development sectors, which is also an important aspect of the horizontal priority: “Open and innovative education, training and youth work, embedded in the digital era”.
