The design studio is a physical place where students can simulate real-world practice without the associated risks. In the EINstudio project, a virtual design studio is to be created that offers students and teachers a collaborative working environment to realise joint projects and work together in an interdisciplinary way regardless of location.

Medicine thrives on the successful communication between patients and health professionals. The "serious game" developed in the project helps health professionals to develop their communication skills through play in a safe and error-friendly environment.

In recent years, a variety of tools and methods for using digital media in vocational education and training have been developed. Employees with little affinity to written texts can especially benefit from audiovisual media. The project brings together good practices from the partner countries and develops a competence profile of digital learning coaches.

Our world is permeated by digital media. Technical instructions are not very attractive for most users. Digital storytelling is an alternative to communicate the way we use everyday digital media and to present them as "everyday heroes." The project develops handouts for educational service providers and product developers to use digital storytelling methods for effective communication with users.

A good command of English is a basic skill for tourism workers. The still developing language skills in many European countries show that conventional teaching has not yet reached many people working in tourism. This is where practice-oriented teaching videos can help. The project has developed a system with which hotels and restaurants can convert typical work and interaction situations into short language teaching videos.

The project uses videos produced in real-life situations to teach referees and athletes in handball and athletics the most important technical vocabulary in English for dealing with the most important situations.
