European E-learning Institute (EUEI) specialises in the creation of powerful online platforms, immersive educational environments and provision of resources and tools to create truly valuable learning experiences. There are eight full time people in the EUEI staff team and all are competent in leadership, team work and the application of diverse quality management frameworks. In addition, we work closely with a network of designers, programmers and pedagogic consultants. We prioritise end-user participation and robust qualitative-quantitative feedback as the chief components of quality and promote individual and organisational learning throughout all our projects. Over 6000 students access our online courses each year. EUEI was founded on the concept of ‘continuing education’; a post-secondary education programme that provides further enrichment to learners in a wide range of sectors, covering topics that are professional and/or personal. As an organisation, EUEI places tremendous worth on the informal and flexible nature of continuing education and crafting flexible, online learning courses for those wishing to improve themselves and stay ahead in their careers and in business. Building inclusive and resilient communities is also a key goal of the organisation. EUEI courses build on the expertise of our European collaborators, who are mainly academic specialists with a successful track record in teaching in the areas of HE, VET and lifelong learning. Each of our online courses is delivered via a state-of-the-art learning system with an asynchronous learning format which enables learners to advance at their own pace, taking into consideration professional and personal commitments. Learning occurs through our interactive platforms where course content theory is combined with practical application supported by case studies, movies and interactive presentations. In addition to this, learners have access to a wide range of resources – typically online textbooks for each subject accompanied by exercises, projects, and assignments. Collaboration and peer learning form an important part of EUEI courses. Learners can directly connect with the professors and trainers who created the course content and are encouraged to join a peer learning platform where individualised, active learning and sharing of learning experiences is fostered.
