  30. 30. elTRIO <ul><li>elTRIO is co-operation network of technology industries for educational institutes and authorities for taking care of not wasting time and money by doing same eLearning materials in several institutes. The main idea in elTRIO is that the network tries to find ways to share eLearning materials instead of creating own versions of materials and learning objects which already exist. </li></ul>

  32. 32. elTRIO is looking for European cooperation <ul><li>elTRIO ( is a national e-learning network for technology industries, metals industry, mechanical engineering, electronics and automation . It is a major national actor that is looking for European cooperation to support the international activities of the technology industries. </li></ul><ul><li>We are looking for possibilities for cooperation with similar European networks in the technology industry and an opportunity to benefit from the results of European research and development projects. We are especially interested in projects that design and develop innovative methods, tools and services for simulations and virtual manufacturing, knowledge management, distributed collaboration at work and learning at work, in both mobile and fixed environments . </li></ul>
  33. 33. The changing nature of work (Harold Jarche, Canada) <ul><li>19th Century – factory Model </li></ul><ul><li>20th Century – Clocks & Cubicles </li></ul>The work environment was relatively simple and best practices for management and communications were developed that still inform many of our current work practices. The information age emerged and organisations had to deal with complicated environments. The flood of management books is an example that there was no single best practice, only good practices.
  34. 34. Our work environments are becoming complex, blurring the lines between work, home and play. We now have access to anyone at anytime. 21th Century – Learning, Working, Playing
