about: Mobivet2.0 project aims to fill the online training gap between the self-guided learners and VET trainers by developing mobile Web2.0-based (e-Learning 2.0) knowledge and skills of the trainers thus turning them from in-class trainers to skilled online mobile tutors (e-tutors). These aims are linked with the European politics in the field of education and training defined in "Council Conclusions on a strategic framework for European cooperation in education and training (ET 2020)", Brussels, May 12 2009, the Lisbon Strategy and other EC documents.

The project will broaden the e-skills and competencies of European VET practitioners (teachers, trainers and tutors) and help develop adequate online training practices for effective distant tutoring of lifelong self-learning activities at the workplace and on the go without time and distance barriers. This way the project will support the development of innovative ICT-based tutoring services, pedagogies and practices for lifelong learning.
