The paper deals with the RESNET project in the frame of Leonardo da Vinci - Transfer of Innovation, number 2008-1-SK1-LEO05-00227. The main objective of the project RESNET “Online learning modules for renewable energy sources for landscape development” is the creation of the Institute of Lifelong Learning (ILL).
The project has been prepared on the basis of the needs for lifelong learning in the agro-sector, especially in the area of its economical and ecological development. The priority is to gain knowledge from an area of renewable energy sources and their possibilities for landscape development.
The successful implementation of the project depends on the mutual connection of longtime participants, their experience in the area of renewable energy sources (RES), lifelong learning, design and realisation of virtual study space and multimedia study materials.
The main role of the ILL is to optimize the possibilities to bring RES education into the area of the agro-sector. Especially the use of e-Learning educational platform makes much easier access of the concrete themes for large scale of end-users. The ILL, as the part of the educational institution of the Ministry of Agriculture in Slovakia, will be involved in the development of continual education strategies and concepts in the agro-food sector.
The Particular aim of the project is to create on-line learning modules focused on landscape development in the area of renewable energy resources (RES). It can open the space for human resources development in agricultural resort. We complete 5 online modules – Solar Energy, Water Energy, Wind Energy, Geothermal Energy and Energy of Biomass and one General module with basic information from the area of Energetics. We also prepare other study materials in the form of a CD-ROM multimedia textbook with animations, hyperlinks, graphics etc. E-learning methods, ICT devices and LMS system used as educational methods and devices.
The last outcome of our project is the creation of two books/guides:”Education Guide for Tutors” and ”Education Guide for Students” - giving the basic information how to prepare and use online course. The publication is conceived as a practical manual for developing valuable e-learning courses in the LMS Moodle environment. The draft version consists of chapters, which focus on the possibilities to use and develop e-learning courses. It is dedicated particularly to lecturers who would like to become familiar with methods of e-learning courses development within the Lifelong Learning and in this way to develop their own professional courses in the LMS Moodle environment and as a practical manual for using the LMS Moodle environment for studying. From this material point of view the, content of the Guide for tutors is as follows - principle of E-learning, guide of how to prepare text for online modules, interactive tools, self-tests or how to manage time for course.
The contents of the Guide for students is principle of distance learning, how to access the course, a guide of how to manage the study time or using multimedia.
