Adjusting Basic Maritime Training in an E-Learning Environment


  • Orestis Schinas
  • Eleftherios Thalassinos


This paper aims to disseminate the results and the findings of two projects, partially funded by the European Commission, one on computer based training and another on e-learning. Both projects have been focused on training employees of the wider marine and maritime community. Different approaches have been used for attacking specific needs and several methodologies have been employed. Both projects are described and presented to the academic community as well as to professionals. Their results and findings are thoroughly discussed. The importance of distance working in modern societies and its intertwined role in relation with the development e-learning are also discussed from the point of view of the wider maritime industry.
