Learning with videos
The consortium behind the project already started the filming of the educational videos on different aspects of the green and digital entrepreneurship. Several experts in Austria, already participated in the creation of the video content. Later on, experts from Germany, Belgium and Bulgaria will join the process.
The videos will be part of the training modules in the Go4DiGreen Learning Platform. They are meant to optimize the learning process. The videos will significantly contribute to the e-learning process due to the engaging effect. The video learning is recognized as more persuasive compared to other content types, supporting on-demand, bite-sized microlearning, and teaching at the moment of need.
Videos provide a more immersive sensory experience than print materials alone. Learners can see and hear the concept being taught, and they can process it in the same way that they process their daily interactions.
They provide a convenient resource that can be accessed from any location with an internet connection. Videos can be viewed on a variety of devices, including laptops, tablets, and smartphones. This allows students to view at their leisure time, and from wherever they are. Videos improve knowledge retention because they can be paused and replayed as many times as necessary. They can also be reviewed after the initial lesson has been completed.

20th June – World Refuge Day
Each year on June 20, the United Nations (UN) honors refugees all over the world with the World Refugee Day. We honor the strength and courage of people who have been forced to flee their home country due to conflict or persecution. World Refugee Day is an opportunity to foster empathy and understanding for their difficult situation, and to recognize their tenacity in rebuilding their lives. Go4DiGreen considers entrpereurship as one of the way refugees can rebuild their lives and support communities and the economic development.
