Implementation of Interactivity and Multimedia-Based Content using Multiple Devices in Adult Education

The world today is digital. In trainings, various types of digital devices are used. This includes desktop PCs, laptops, notebooks, Chromebooks, tablets, covertibles and smartphones. We call them “Multiple Devices”. They enable the use of technology enhanced trainings with an implementation of multimedia-based and interactive (M&I) training materials. This sounds simple – the problem is the delivery of content so that it is displayed (and can be used by the trainees) on all types of devices. Another issue (in this context) is the creating of high-quality multimedia-based and interactive (M&I) content – especially in smaller Adult Education organisations.
The project serves to exchange experiences and to develop digital skills, especially in the multimedia area within the staff of the participating organisations. Furthermore, the development and use of M&I learning materials should be worked out together, brought into context with multiple devices and developed in a comprehensive documentation. A special focus is put on methodology and approaches to support seniors in this digital-oriented learning and trainings. Furthermore, the organisations will use the gained experience and knowledge to promote Erasmus+ programs – and in this sence especially courses – to all generations in their home countries.







The EBI/EIE was involved in numerous national and European projects. In these projects, the EBI/EIE was either coordinator or contributed to the project as researcher or executing partner.


LLP LogoThe EBI/E/E participated in two important projects in the frame of the LLP program.

  • Grundtvig Learning Partnership CreaTech (2008 – 2010)
  • Grundtvig Multilateral Project Blended Learning Quality – Concepts Optimized for Adult Education (2013 – 2015)

Erasmus+ Projects

Erasmus+_LogoErasmus+ aims to promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education, In 2017, the EBI/EIE (with the partner association EFQUBL) started two new Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships.

In 2018, another three projects were launched:

  • Flipped Adult Education (FAdE Adult Education)
    Erasmus+ 2018-1-AT01-KA204-039224
  • CICERO – Enhancing Digital Competence through Photography
    Erasmus+ 2018-1-SE01-KA204-039051
  • TEST – Technology Enhanced Science Teaching
    Erasmus+ 2018-1-ES01-KA201-050186

New projects started in November 2020 (one with the EBI/EIE as a coordinator).

  • Intermedia – Implementation of Interactivity and multimedia-based content using Multiple Devices in Adult Education
    This will care about the development of multimedia-based and interactive content for courses using multiple devices.
    This is an Erasmus+ Higher Education (with two universities as partners) with the aim to create a platform for a Community of Practice.

    E4ALLE4ALL – Education for All
    The general aim of the project is to support adult educators in designing, delivering, and promoting more attractive and inclusive education for all generations of adult learners. The direct target group of the project includes the members, workers, co-workers, educators, and volunteers of the Third Sector adult education organisations

Projects with the new ERASMUS+ Programme (after 2020).

The priorities for the new Erasmus+ program include promoting inclusion, digitalization, and environmental sustainability while enhancing skills development and fostering innovation in the fields of education, training, youth, and sport.

The cooperation with the University of Cyprus enabled another project in 2022.

  • DigiComPass – Digital Competences Recognition Framework for Adult Education
    The project started in December 2022. It aims to develop a course package to enable adults to increase their digital competencies. The project focuses on the implementation of Flipped Learning 3.0.

Future Projects

The EBI/EIE will apply for new projects in the future. The focus will be set on Adult Education, Digital competencies for teachers, trainers, and adults, technology-enhanced teaching, training and learning, cultural awareness, and related items.
