  3. 3. Introduction European project e-EAV ( e-Engagement Against Violence) aims to deconstruct populist stereotypes about race, gender, disability and sexual orientation in the media, and promote youth engagement against hate speech through the development of skills of participation and digital media education. Teachers and educators play a crucial role in contributing to these objectives by raising awareness among young people about these issues through media education. At the same time, they need supports to be involved in the teaching in this field. That is why the e-EAV project develops an online learning environment to enhance teachers' and educators' self-learning about media literacy and discrimination. You will find in this manual illustrated explanations about the online interface of this learning environment.

Once you start one activity, you will find instructions, questions, media resources, etc. For example, here above is an extract of an activity of the module 4. The kind of question can vary from one test to another. In this case, just select the answer you think is correct and go to the next question via the link below or the arrows'progression above. You can also return to the previous question by clicking on the appropriate link. In most cases, you will find a feedback at the end of each activity. This feedback allows you to compare your answers to those expected. An explanation might even be proposed.

Chamilo is an e-learning system (i.e. learning management) developed collaboratively by various companies, associations and individuals, through an open model called « free software ». Chamilo is not only developed collaboratively by dozens of people around the world, it is also supported by a non-profit organisation whose purpose is to promote the platform and ensure its continuity. In this way, Chamilo is the only e-learning free software platform that brings so many guarantees of free access. Média-Animation asbl (Belgium) has used, implemented and adapted this software on their servers in order to develop this online environment « e-engagement against violence ».

All you have to do now is to get started on the platform and discover its contents and features. We are certainly far from a classroom training and this type of device presents both opportunities and limits, but why not make the jump and explore new learning methods ?
