The aim of the project is to implement shoe design training content (at elementary and intermediate level) into a virtually designed and served training centre which is accessible over internet, e-learning will be realised as an innovation in this field.
VTC-SHOE is a multi lingual virtual environment in which the shoe design training is served in English, Romanian, Turkish and Greek according to the curriculum developed for this purpose up to intermediate level. As a training tool, the curriculum is in accord with the approach, methodology and techniques required for virtual training. The audio and other visual aids contribute to its attractiveness for a trainee or trainer in this field. In addition, the animations, quizzes and design collection can further contribute this tool to become more attractive and effective in training. Since this training tool is in English, Romanian, Turkish and Greek version, it can help its scope and effect as a training tool internationally. In this way, it can be transferred to similar fields such as furniture, textile, air conditioning etc. The approach, methodology and techniques used in this training centre can be used as a model in developing and improving other training programmes in particular in the area of new information technology applications in related sectors.
