The project will develop a prototype for a marketable multimedia education and training system to meet intellectually disabled adults' individual learning needs, helping them to reach basic standards of personal skills for their daily life, improve their social integration, and be a productive member of the economy. The users are intellectually disabled adults in sheltered industrial workshops, supplying products e.g. for the automotive industry. The software uses the Detmold Learning Path Model (Lernwegemodell von Detmold), and the system will be application-oriented, using multimedia. This open system will enable the trainer to create or adapt new methods to meet the demands of the sheltered workshop, and provide a learning phase for the student, including a self-tuition possibility, with continuing assessment throughout.
