Dear GTN Community!

This autumn marks a significant milestone on our journey, and we are pleased to report that our ongoing projects have been yielding great results. Our team's hard work and dedication have paid off. 

We're also excited to announce some new projects on the horizon. These initiatives promise to bring new opportunities for growth and we are proud to share more details about them:

Cooperation project with German states Baden-Württemberg and Berlin

The app to help develop competency-based learning paths for students called DAKORA+ is now also being financed by spx consult for Lernraum Berlin. This partnership brings together two different organizations that are key to the educational system of both states.
Currently, we are in the process of introducing additional functionalities related to the management and customization of personalized learning paths within the app.


Participation at the MoodleMoot Global Barcelona

During this year's MoodleMoot Global event, Andreas Riepl made a significant contribution concerning eduvidual.at, which is the largest Moodle installation in Austria, hosting over 300,000 users. In addition to his presentation, a group from the Austrian teachers' network eEducation also delivered their presentation. All presentations were related to didactics combined with digital learning.



New customer for EXABIS product series

Together with the officially certified Moodle partner in Japan, E-Learning Co., Ltd., GTN has established a working partnership for supporting the EXABIS plugin series found on moodle.org.

During this year's MoodleMoot Global in Barcelona the business relationship between Mr. Takeshi Matsuzaki, CEO from e-learning.co.jp, was affirmed by Mizuki Katayama from e-learning.co.jp and Andreas Riepl from GTN. GTN is continuing the development of the Exabis series which specializes on competency based portfolio work.


Financial education for teens

In partnership with the Austrian Ministry of Finance, we have started a project dedicated to financial education for teenagers. About 30 e-learning objects will cover various aspects of financial literacy including fascinating topics such as investment, digital finance, cryptocurrency, blockchain and many more.

Our team continues working on several Erasmus+ projects:


ALiVE - a project on media and digital literacy for adults 45+ who had limited exposure to
digital technologies in their formative years. This group is particularly vulnerable to misinformation, online fraud and data breaches.
Currently partner organizations are designing learning materials to equip the audience with the necessary skills to critically assess and navigate the digital space and to empower them to make informed decisions.
The content will be available in online courses so called Learning Stations hosted in a 3D virtual space, to provide an immersive learning experience to a growing virtual community of learners.



Mentor 2.0 is a project aiming at supporting teachers switching the traditional role of knowledge transmitter to that of a skilled mentor able to find an individual approach to each student's unique needs. Five learning modules of Mentor 2.0 were estimated by 127 teachers and 10 educational experts across 5 countries - Austria, Italy, Spain, Poland and Greece - and got favorable feedback. 

The next phase involves the creation of a digital platform designed to host these valuable materials, ensuring accessibility to educators. This inclusive approach aims to also empower teachers from rural areas who may face limited opportunities for professional development.

Andreas Riepl and Barbara Simetzberger just attended the transnational partner meeting in Athens. In addition Andreas moderated the third panel of the New Education Forum conference that took place at the University of Piraeus on the 17th of October. Part of the panel discussion was Martin Dougiamas, founder of Moodle.



The main objective of CUTIE (Competences for University Teaching & Institutional Empowerment) project is to enhance digital competencies for university teaching which can be implemented at institutional and departmental levels, thereby facilitating systemic impact. 

The student’s voice should also be considered during the project. This will be established by the university partners being The University of Copenhagen, University of Galway, University of Akureyri, Technical University Krakow, University of Murcia and the University of Zagreb. 

Our latest development – the Cataloguing Tool - serves as a comprehensive database of ideas and resources, offering an easier entry point for everyone. It also invites users to contribute by adding their own ideas, initiatives, resources and actions!
