Apart from traditional methods, modern, based on e-learning methods, will be applied in the project “IT Education as an activating factor of adults from areas under danger of unemployment /ITEFAFU/”. The prepared courses will successively be placed on e-learning platform Moodle, adopted to the objectives of the project. Listeners and project participants can make use of the offered courses at home, with the use of home computers, in the laboratories of partner’s organizations or, as in the case of Poland, via the computer installed directly for the objectives of the project in their place. Using the courses available at any moment via a computer has many advantages. The courses offered on-line can provide a wonderful support to traditional courses or can be fully independent courses. Each on-line course has its teacher. Contact between the teacher and the listener is possible via the e-learning platform. The teacher can check on the activities and the progress of the listener. The courses on-line allow also the pupil to monitor his progress.

Project title: IT Education as an activating factor of adults from areas under danger of unemployment
General information about the project
The project concerns adults who are looking for a job because they are unemployed or would like to change their present occupation but due to various reasons, especially connected with their environment, face difficulties in finding a job. The project program is aimed at people living in various weakly urbanized environments: countryside and small towns. The accomplishment of the project is a multistep program. Based on statistical data, in the initial phase of a project, target regions were defined and essential contacts with local representatives were made. The courses to be accomplished in the first step of the project were determined and their programs prepared:
Two of the above courses have already been carried out in a traditional way by the institutions that prepared the programs. After translating into national languages of the project partners the courses will be carried out in all participating countries. The accomplishment of the project will be based on blended learning, i. e., will involve traditional and modern teaching methods connected with IT. Due to the peculiarity of the project the main stress will be put on distant learning. Therefore in the second stage of the project the courses will be implemented on the e-learning platform Moodle, adjusted to the requirements of the project. In the final stage of the project all courses will be available on the e-learning platform Moodle and can serve as a support to traditional courses offered e. g., by Employment Agencies or can be treated as fully independent courses. As a supplement to courses, guides to courses and leaflets will be prepared.
The project is supported by European Commission as part of the Socrates Grundtvig 2 program (LLP).
