Abstract

The SLOOP Project aims at promoting and facilitating the integration of eLearning, work-based learning and face to face education in schools, colleges, universities, training centres and by teachers/trainers and, generally speaking, by everybody who is involved in planning and running pedagogical paths.

Such an integration, in fact, improves the efficacy of learning by allowing to customise learning paths, to support learners with purposely developed on-line materials and with a system of relations with no limits of time and space.

To meet such a goal, the project intends to:

1. define a model of LOs in tune with international standards (pedagogical and technical characteristics and metadata);
2. implement a free LO Management System allowing LOs development, modification and use;
3. develop collections of LOs useful for teachers’ training and to be used with students.

The project pursues also the aim of contributing to the fulfilment of the seventh point of the Declaration of Copenhagen: “Giving attention to the learning needs of teachers and trainers within all forms of vocational education and training.”
