Disciplined guerilla tactics are often required in designing and developing online education that meets the needs without breaking the budget – and it’s always good to meet others who are prepared to find the tools for the job rather than the job for the tools. Yesterday, the European-funded iEducate online vocational education and training project held one of its final dissemination meetings in the spacious and leafy University of Warwick. For me, the stand-out presentation was that by Swedish partner, Tinta, who had used free or nearly free tools to help museums and art galleries caught between the needs to develop and curate their collections and the desire to interest and inform as wide a public as possible about their works. What’s more, European educators working in that sector are eligible for Comenius grants to attend sector-specific Tinta training courses.
