The pedagogical and quality framework for courses within the VTT-Box project builds on contemporary theories and principles of learning and uses up-to-date principles drawn from extensive research in e-learning. The general aim is to help teachers build a learning environment in cyberspace, which is learner-centered, interactive, provocative and challenging but also supportive for the learners. It also aims to help educators build affordable, user-friendly and competitive education for their students. This framework is used in the developed and implemented courses. It's also part of the Toolbox.
