Technology and the use of technology in teaching, training and learning is a central item. The “art of teaching with technology” is always in flux and new ideas, technologies or procedures emerge. In a European project that revolves around innovation and cooperation between different educational institutions, it is necessary to look at things at the cutting edge.
This was the reason, why Peter Mazohl – an experienced trainer using technology for the last 20 years – attended a MOOC who deals with the latest state of the art.
Introduction to Technology-Enabled Learning

Peter Mazohl evaluated the course as an excellent opportunity for newbies to get the “big idea” and to create an overview of technology-enhanced learning. For experienced trainers it is an interesting possibility to stay informed and at the current level of technology-enhanced teaching and training as well as to become in contact with trainers that are also interested in this topic.
