Objective

The COVID-19 pandemic introduced new challenges in regard to how work activities are organised, but also highlighted the potential of remote work activities. The resulting new operating model has also given rise to the need to provide clients and employees with a new kind of learning path for digital skills.

The objective of the project is to strengthen the digital skills of the clients and employees of rehabilitative work activities in Helsinki. To support this, the project will develop a secure and user-friendly digital learning platform and learning content for it.
