The COVID-19 outbreak in Europe and the necessary national measures taken to tackle the spread of the virus may cause significant disruption to the provision of education and training and to the opportunities for learners, teachers and educators to travel across the European Union (EU).
Online tools – like many digital tools (online and offline) – can serve different educational purposes:
- connecting educators and learners with each other when in separate locations
- accessing information and environments not usually available in every home or institution
- supporting the continued professional development of educators in a flexible way
To help ensure continuity in education and training activities, there is a wide range of online learning materials:
- online platforms
- EU-funded projects
