Online Learning Engineering Environment – OLEE

Assist VET Trainers and learners of the Engineering sector in the transition towards a digital educational & research ecosystem in the post COVID-19 era

About the project

Online Learning Engineering Environment – OLEE project sets itself the aim to assist VET Trainers and learners of the Engineering sector in the transition towards a digital educational & research ecosystem in the post covid-19 era. The need for a rapid redesigning of educational practices, which so far were dependent on physical contact, has never been greater. Various aspects of research based learning can and should be re-designed virtually, so that learners/ trainees whose learning and training activities have been disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic can resume productive and fruitful enquiries.

Main Objectives

The OLEE project aims to:


The designing and piloting of innovative online resources. In particular, delivering a Virtual Laboratory for Engineering lab-work activities


Reinforcing the ability of VET providers to provide high-quality, inclusive digital education.


The promotion of networking and collaboration between EU institutions, sharing of resources and expertise.


Support towards the VET communities for the acquisition of digital competencies.


Supporting the Engineering sector & building their resilience & digital capacity.

Target Groups

VET teachers/trainers/ learners

VET providers

Consortium members (Staff and associates)

Other Stakeholders


Main Results

The following tangible project results are going to be sustained after the project implementation period:


A new innovative training material will be created in OER form, compliant to DigiComp and specifically addressed to the needs of VET trainers and researchers. The training material will be available in 5 languages.


Approximately 100 VET teachers/ trainers (12 that will attend the training the certification plus the VET teachers/ trainers and staff from the consortium partners) will directly benefit from the implementation of the OLEE project.


An estimated 70 VET providers will benefit from the project results. It is estimated that approximately 60% of the total individuals that will participate in the DigEdu+ training and certification procedure will come from VET centers and will directly benefit from the project results and outputs.


Active involvement of education stakeholders and policy makers. It is also expected that each partner will engage 2-3 additional stakeholders during the development of the curriculum and the testing of the product, adding further 12-18 indirect beneficiaries.


An innovative virtual learning laboratory for the engineering sector for stakeholders to further utilize.
