Teacher training programme in e-learning

The training program is closely related to the ICT competences of teachers and lecturers and it is built up on three levels:

  1. basic training
  2. intermediate training
  3. expert and tutor training
Since 2004, development of a training program for teachers, lecturers (and educational technologists) started to help and support them in creating their own courses. Today the training program is known as the e-learning program and consists of 24 e-courses. The program is elaborated in cooperation with our partners from the Estonian e-University consortium (University of Tartu, Tallinn University and Estonian Information Technology College).

Briefly, the goal of basic training courses is to introduce e-learning opportunities and to provide e-learning experience. Main topics here are e-learning methodologies and virtual learning environments. Courses at intermediate training level concentrate on e-learning technologies and platforms, e-course design, multimedia, pedagogical aspects of e-learning, social software etc. Expert training covers topics such as image processing and animations, graphics, audio and also requirements to the courses for handicapped people. Most of the courses have practical value which helps participants create their own e-course or to follow up existing course(s).

Even though the training programme is in Estonian, a few courses in English have been developed and are available for non-Estonian speakers.
