AN E-LEARNING SYSTEM FOR PROFESSIONAL ORIENTATION

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (GREECE)
The dynamics of the new global economy form an environment characterized by uncertainty, insecurity and risky decision-making. This established status urges countries to implement and incorporate a digital policy in all financial and social sectors in order to achieve solid, sustainable development. Contemporary politicians, businessmen and citizens are compelled to think in digital terms; to see future economic viability and social growth under a digital umbrella.
A school unit, as the structural module of most educational systems, constitutes the field of expression of fundamental educational policy; moreover, it represents the primary receiver of the tendencies, the target of the priorities and the mirror of the contemporary needs reflected by societies.
This paper describes the action of an urban Greek high-school willing to approach the Greek periphery, thus making an extroverted step in order to meet local communities and transfer pieces of valuable expertise. Its philosophy, that changes result primarily from proper use of human capital and that constant specialized training and personal growth are key notions in education, led to the designing and implementation on behalf of the school, of an e-learning system, suitable for young people residing in the rural area. Our involvement in this project as coordinators provided us with certain experience, the parameters of which, the problems encountered and the benefits acquired, we expose in this case study.
