Project concept

Initial situation

Digital media are becoming increasingly important and offer innovative learning opportunities for employees with different skill levels. Digital media are time and location independent, customisable, easily accessible, scalable and allow for differentiated learning paths. However, SME training staff are often not trained in the production and use of digital media.

Target groups and their benefits

The DigiVET project is aimed at in-company training staff. They are to be supported in the training of their media competences in order to design and produce digital media in line with the company's framework conditions. In a special way, work areas of low-skilled employees are addressed so that they can train information and media competences.

Project goal

The project supports SMEs in acquiring competences for the use and production of digital learning media by training "digital learning coaches" and having them pass on their knowledge to in-company training staff. The introduction of digital media to support workplace learning changes the corporate learning culture and makes the learning system more adaptable. Learning with digital media is closer to learning habits, takes place in a work-integrated way and reaches a larger group of employees, thus ensuring their employability.

Role of ISOB

ISOB is responsible for the internal evaluation and quality assurance in the DigiVET project. In addition, ISOB supports the development of the handbook "Media Literacy" and the target group-oriented dissemination of the project results.
