Qualification of training and teaching personnel for the use of open telelearning.
 


Introduction

The current developments of international data networks (Internet and Online services) for the first time offer extent possibilities to implement computer aided multimedia telelearning in the field of initial and continuing vocational training. This concerns for example possibilities of simultation, mulitmedia aided interactive learning as well as in parts automatised learning assesment. Just these possibilities place among other things the basis for a didactic development of telelearning. Especially for promoting learning offers and learning partnerships throughout Europe, the utilisation of transnational networks seems to be advantageous.

Nevertheless many priviously developed modules of telelearing remain unsatisfactory because both in development and above all in realising didactic innovations they do not show to advantage. The new techical possibilities are used for the most part, but often the qustion arises whether there is a didactic innovation in comparison to paper orientated distance learning concepts.

In the context of promoting didactic utilisation of new media throughout Europe, the traning and teaching personnel take a key position. Here the planned project must start: ways of qualifying training and teaching personnel how to use telelearning are to be shown.
