    Business failure is an intrinsic characteristic of entrepreneurship. Given its dimension and repercussions, we consider that entrepreneurial education, in particular entrepreneurial e-learning platforms should include a module on business failure covering in addition to the national legal framework and EU policies, the key barriers faced by entrepreneurs and causes of business failure and other such elements. Thus, we propose to develop a platform based on open source software, such as Moodle in which modules based on SCORM and interactive teaching have been developed, with all the tools that are needed to simulate classic teaching.
