This paper discusses the experience gathered in establishing digital learning scenarios aiming to include Film Making and short videos in adult education.

Learning today takes place in the context of interaction between formal, non-formal and informal learning. The methodology chosen in the European project ‘Digital Film Making for Broadening the Landscape of Informal Adult Education’ co-financed by the Erasmus+ Programme is Open Innovation to facilitate more efficient use, co-design and co-creation of digital content, taking into account the changing role of learners, trainers and educational organisations. Trainers have to be able to understand the methodological underpinnings to deliver substantial benefits to their learners.

The trials include experiences with educational videos for refugees in Austria who are offered German language courses during their asylum application process. The experience track includes also lessons learnt from EU Project Management courses. The challenge is to mainstream applications and tools into non-technical contexts. Trial of ICT-based environments for innovative learning experiences and experimentation in language learning and European Project Management training included also 3D tools, learning with mobile phones devices as well as visualisation methods for EU-related matters and language courses.
