 Outputs from the IFIP AGORA Seminar

Seoul, 4th and 5th of June 2007

The first « Atelier » of the AGORA IFIP project on Lifelong Learning
has been established in Seoul: “SEOUL 2.0.”

The AGORA project on Lifelong Learning was launched by IFIP in Poitiers, France, last October. TC3 has played a major role in proposing and creating this project. The AGORA project, an element of the process of revitalisation of the IFIP strategy, aims at implementing a dynamic methodology for initiating cooperation projects on Lifelong Learning with many different stakeholders.

The second AGORA event, a Seminar about Lifelong Learning, was held in Seoul, Korea, 4-5 June 2007. The first “Atelier” on Lifelong Learning was created: “Seoul 2.0.” aims at making IFIP a real “Learning Organization” in the Lifelong Learning Society.
The “Atelier”, whose function is to generate generic knowledge based on the experience of different “studios” and then to be used the “studios” where Lifelong Learning pilot implementations are realised, is made of 4 international “studios”. Each “studio” will be directed at practical, real-world creation of practical instances of e-Education for Lifelong Learning. “Studios” will provide contextual solutions, suitable for the cultural, social and economic context. The 4 first studios are:
- The “Cyber-Teacher Studio”, aiming at working on the new competences of Teachers and Trainers in the Lifelong Learning Society, and providing ideas, tools and resources for building such competences.
- The “Digital Divide Studio”, aiming at using Lifelong Learning as a mean to reduce the digital divide and aiming at making Lifelong Learning available for all, in order to avoid a “knowledge divide”.
- “How to manage and administrate Lifelong Learning”: The studio will work on the impact of Lifelong Learning on the management of Education and Training, and will provide tools for managing Lifelong Learning.
- The “Croatian Studio”, aiming at organising e-Learning for Croatian businesses and providing the basic skills to Managers.

Other studios are to be established, other ateliers are to be created.
On this occasion, the AGORA Business Plan was developed. AGORA will contribute in many future IFIP events. The next AGORA Conference will be held in Krakow, Poland, in 2008. All TCs are welcome!

Organizing e-learning for Croatian businesses
Case Study

Case holder: Marijan Frkovic, Croatian IT Society
 Moderator:  Tom van Weert, IFIP Agora Initiative


  • Introduction
The case study of the organization of e-learning for Croatian businesses was analysed using the IFIP Agora Initiative SEOUL 2.0 model for Lifelong Learning, in particular the module dealing with lifelong learning organisations. The aim was to allow the Chamber of Economy (Chamber of Commerce) of Croatia to organize the e-learning in such a way that lessons can be learned and applied to other cases of e-learning that the Chamber may want to provide in future.
