    -    supply information to the entrepreneurs, institutions and the private sector on the project activities.
    Through the web-based platform the users will have at their disposal:
    -    a Virtual Classroom area for online lessons, seminars and assesment tests
    -    a chat system to carry on tutoring and counselling activities.
    In addition, UNINETTUNO is in charge of the training of experts and technicians, selected by UNIDO, in the didactic and organisational methodologies to be used.The selected experts, are trained at UNINETTUNO site in Rome, to be able to deliver the new teaching models using the television and Internet languages.

Upon the project completion, UNINETTUNO will also deal with the production of 360 hours of didactic modules in English and Arabic and of the recording of the training sessions in DVD format to be used as off-line training tools as well as of the broadcasting of UNIDO training contents on the Internet and on satellite TV.
