The project context

Even before the outbreak of the Covid19 emergency, the shifting from an industry-based society to a knowledge-based society had already started radically changing the training approaches. Online was already spreading, supported by constantly evolving technologies and it was considered an important asset for HEIs.

Covid19 has accelerated the process and forced all the HEIs to face the challenge of shifting online what initially was delivered in person. Lecturers learned that it is not enough to translate training content into a .ppt presentation or into a video-lecture to make it effective: there are specific pedagogical methodologies for developing classes and digital contents that must be mastered for delivering quality products and many educators were not aware of them.
