The project is dealing with conservation science education offered as multi-lateral e-learning modules. Material heritage preservation is difficult to be covered in all its aspects in one institution. Furthermore, it is crucial to offer distant adult learners instruction on specific themes, and this can only be achieved by experts recruited in more than one area. The educational environment is designed as a three-fold pattern – before, during and after each course unit. In the first phase learners are prepared by having available all didactic material needed. During the frontal hours they use videoconferencing, and webcasting/archiving; and afterwards they may benefit from study material, self-assessment opportunities and a meeting point with the instructor. Linguistic issues are attended to at all instances. The e-learning platform consists of an open-source course management system, combined to a direct dialogue tool, and an open video learning system sustaining extended self-study.
