In-service training through e-learning should be seen as a special field of adult education. The lessons learned from adult education must be an inspiration to the design of in-service training approaches that support collaborative learning and promote the development of virtual communities. This points support our conviction that e-learning is a “promising land” to new opportunities of training and professional development activities.

This online course will describe three different cases of e-learning initiatives taken place at University of Minho - Portugal.

1. The first lesson reports to a research project called ttVLC – trainers training to Virtual Learning Communities.

2. The second lesson aims to promote in-service professional development of secondary and high-school teachers, called “EASIC – in English: Teaching and Learning in the Information Society).

3. The third lesson is titled "Training of E-trainers" which aim helping university teachers to adopt e-learning methodologies
