Web centre for adult
education and lifelong learning
The ELECTRA project is developing a web information centre for adult
education and training issues, which will be a reference point for national activities.
The ELECTRA Centre offers information on policies, educational and guidance providers,
courses, educational methods and publications for adult education and lifelong learning.
The material is available in English, French, German, Greek, Italian and Swedish.
The project consortium expects the ELECTRA Centre to have a substantial impact.
Accessibility to education, training and guidance-counselling in the participating
countries are expected to increase through the use of the centre's resources.
Subscriptions through ELECTRA to training courses, especially those provided via the
Internet, will help to develop commercial links to educational and training organisations.
Anyone using the discussion forums will have the opportunity to address experts and
specialists in the fields of adult education and lifelong learning. Moreover, the
provision of multilingual information about international, European, national and regional
policies and examples of practice will help policy makers to compare the strategies used
in other countries. The diffusion of different countries' information policies and
examples of current practice through a European information site will increase awareness
on how cultural factors affect educational practices.
Exhibition visitors may explore the ELECTRA system, to obtain information regarding
educational and training organisations, courses, counselling and guidance providers,
policies, programmes and initiatives in France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Sweden and the
United Kingdom. They may participate in discussion forums, as well as inserting
information into the system.
