Leonardo project

      Multimedia Learning Resource Centre

      The Leonardo Project is a collaboration
between Artec in UK, FAS in Ireland,
      AKK in Finland and Stavroupoli in Greece.

      It is an ambitious two year project that looks
at the multimedia industries in
      the four countries involved to examine the
context and provision of multimedia training.

      It utilises the expertise of Artec trainers in
helping to provide a model of
      training that can be used Europe-wide. This
involves exchanges between the
      trainers and the production of learning
materials that can be used in different
      countries and over the internet.

      FAS is co-ordinating the project and has
linked with University College Dublin
      to enable use of the West software that they
have developed which delivers
      training over the internet and enables
discussion between tutor and student.

      The final vision for this project will be to
have a 'Virtual Learning City' where
      anyone can find out where courses are provided
in multimedia by looking at the
      Multimedia Coursefinder (only available for
the UK at the moment).

      They will be able to interrogate a database of
training information, course
      documents, analyses of strategies for
learning. Eventually we hope to have a
      complete exchange which will include matching
employers with multimedia
      professionals and a comprehensive overview of
the multimedia industries,
      which will help us to define the most relevant
multimedia training.
