back to ACTIVE training project

The goal of training activities in ACTIVE is to achieve the transfer of knowledge and best practices within the project as well as (principally) outside the project. ACTIVE training program is aimed at training individuals and groups on the topics that are relevant to the ACTIVE project. Each training program covers a general topic and is generated from several training courses that are focused on specific topics. Furthermore, each training program combines different types and forms of learning: traditional, ICT supported or blended training event. For each training course we provide textual materials, references to the sources used for training module preparation, a list of the topic relevant ACTIVE deliverables, video tutorials and additional materials/suggested readings.

6. Practical Examples and ACTIVE Prototypes

In this course the development process of the ACTIVE prototypes for three specific applications will be demonstrated. The development process and the applications with their specific benefits which are created by the ACTIVE research results will be shown. The course will be supplemented with a hands-on workshop to allow participants to deal with concrete examples from their work context. The focus will be on identifying areas of applications where the functionalities developed in the ACTIVE project can be applied. Practical Examples and ACTIVE Prototypes - course

Course topics:

Case studies and best practices

Demonstrators, demos, prototypes

Use scenarios

9. ACTIVE project - Introduction
