HERMES - E-learning Platform for First Line Practitioners
The training catalog will be hosted in the HERMES Learning Platform. A learning platform is an integrated set of interactive online services that provides the trainers and trainees with information, tools and resources to support and enhance educational delivery and management.
The HERMES Platform is a comprehensive system enabling secure, web-based training and e-learning solution that employs a simple and intuitive user interface.
The Hermes Platform includes different tools:
- Content Management:
This tool enables the delivery of electronic learning content; it enables the trainers and trainees to create, store and repurpose resources and coursework which can be accessed online. The HERMES platform is based on Moodle.
Moodle is a free and open-source learning management system (LMS) written in PHP and distributed under the General Public License with customizable management features.
- Curriculum mapping and planning:
It provides tools and storage to support assessment for learning, customization, lesson planning etc.
The various tools integrated into the Learning System facilitate communication by means of email, messaging, discussion forums, bulletin boards and blogs.
This includes systems and tools that support the management of the teaching and learning process by tracking the progress of the users with assessment tests. Besides, administration of the entire online classroom setup, the platform allows trainers to monitor logins and management information concerning each trainee.
While HERMES was developed under the project DERAD and TRAINING AID, the following projects decided to take advantage of this platform for their courses: J-SAFE, MINDb4ACT, JP-COOPS.
