Thursday, 23 February 2012
The Coordination project for distance learning aims to collect and spread good practices on distance learning, to collaborate with different distance learning projects, developers and creators, to form new kinds of networks and create new operation models to support different distance learning needs. The project also carries out research into how different learning materials suit distance learning and to distribute data nationally and, to the extent appropriate, internationally.
The project covers all general education and collects also good practices from vocational education and basic education of arts. Within the project together with the University of Turku nationally valid reports on distance learning solutions are obtained. The project started in September 2010 and continues until the end of 2012. It is mainly financed by the National Board of Education and coordinated by educational system of City of Turku.
