E-learning tools and services can be used in many different ways to complement ELIXIR training methods. In the future, ELIXIR training courses could use e-learning services (e-learning augmented training) to enable course participants and trainers to concentrate fully on the content of the course, moving away from the complexity of local installation of tools and services needed for a course. Such e-learning augmented training should enable teachers to follow participants' progress during course execution remotely or in situ, either synchronously or asynchronously.
EeLP follows Trainground principles and provides a single access point for trainers as well as trainees, to all necessary information, dynamic educational resources, tools and services for any training event, including access to registration, compute infrastructure (HPC), exams, comms and certificates.
For long term sustainability of ELIXIR e-learning it is important to have a specific e-learning community forum where e-learning information and experiences are exchanged. For that purpose, an ELIXIR e-learning group was established in January 2019 and will exist beyond the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE project. This group will set up and maintain the list of e-learning services and tools provided by the Nodes that will be displayed in TeSS, will provide an e-learning consultant service and will address issues such as transforming existing face-to-face course into e-learning courses or the needs of special e-learning tools or services for training events.
