The learning programme and the platform specifications are two intertwined entities that will be defined at this stage of the project. The learning programme and the detailed curriculum will dictate the platform specifications. Emphasis will be given on fostering true collaboration and best practice transfer as well as on designing a flexible curriculum that will be updated both during the e-training as well as through the mentoring phase. Although courses will be provided in English, wiki style glossaries will be made available to trainees and a crowd sourced approach will be adopted regarding their updates/enrichment.

They will be created in the form of digital learning objects and will conform with SCROM allowing for their sharing, reuse and extension.
O5: On line validation test
The on line validation test will help trainees keep track of their understanding of the taught concepts during the e-training and it will also serve as a tool for visitors and students of the openly available material in order to assess their knowledge and perhaps motivate themselves in following the offered training either by joining an organised e-course or by adopting a self paced approach.

O9: Dissemination and sustainability plan and material
Dissemination of project actions and results will be spread throughout the project life span. All training material and key mentoring results will remain available after the end of the project. The provided e-training will be designed and implemented in such a manner that it will allow for self-paced learning. The on line validation tool will also be available and will give live feedback to potential learners. The sustainability plan will focus on concrete ways of making project results and products available for use in a sustainable way in the future. All dissemination material will be created in the 4 partner languages.
