Position Paper on blended learning
EU directive 2003/59/EC on the initial qualification and periodic training of drivers of certain road vehicles for the carriage of goods or passengers does not prohibit the use of e-learning. Some EU Member States have in their implementation of the directive in national law, provided for the possibility to pass parts of the periodic training of professional drivers via e-learning units. Austria even allows for entire modules to be taken with e-learning methods. In MOVING’s point of view, the implementation with a blended learning approach is more expedient and efficient than e-learning alone.
