By Hans-Dieter Haller, Jutta List-Ivancovic and Tim Scholze

In the years 2004 and 2005 the project eL3 was developed in the European healthcare, social, environmental and educational sector.
The aim of the project was to collect information and practice examples from hospitals to grass-root institutions to contribute to the actual discussion about “blended learning”.

Project partners from 4 European countries, from educational institutes and from 3rd sector organisations collaborated to get a common ground and basic information about the situation as far as blended learning in the 3rd sector is concerned.
The project aimed to give an information base and practical support to those stakeholders dealing with learning and blended learning in their institutions.
