The main objective of this project was to enhance the skills of adult educators in the area of e-learning so that learners may benefit from the educational benefits of this medium. We wanted to involve educators as much as possible through participating on the Internet online course, which was created as part of the project. The theme of this course is "Moodle in use". The course shows teachers how to prepare and run an e-learning course through the use of the Moodle platform and then how to create their own e-learning courses using the skills they have acquired. The online course helped teachers to acquire the basis of digital literacy necessary and sufficient to develop their own web based course for their individual learners and enhanced web training materials as well. These skills would enable educators to act with greater flexibly in their curriculum delivery and served to increase the level of interest amongst adult learners in the subject being covered by the course. In the modern world there is a need to use not only traditional methods of teaching, as in the partner countries there are many adult students that live in distant regions (or countries in cases where students emigrate), but also a need to develop and use more flexible teaching methods that reach out to the target groups. The starting point can was experience of educators (teachers, tutors, authors of the courses, other educationalists) who already developed and delivered such a courses. The good practice gained by partners already engaged in e learning was shared with other educators who wanted to develop their competences in this area.
