Distance learning provides many advantages:

  • For learners: define own pace, time and place + access to new competence anywhere + exchange beyond borders
  • For projects and providers: versatile application + higher outreach + reduced costs
  • For the planet: reduced footprint + more equal access + increased exchange
  • Yet there are disadvantages: rather theory than practice + absenteeism of learners + low level of current adult learning principles + high initial development costs

In times where mobility and physical cooperation are severely restricted, it is a good opportunity to break new ground in distance and online learning.

CEFE International is working on such tools since quite some time and now looks for partnerships or projects that are interested in using them and accelerating the development. The aim is to make the step from invention to innovation and to roll it out effectively.
