Program has been designed to understand virtual working activity. Due to physical disabilities, potential virtual assistants may not have had the opportunity or the mobility to obtain proper job training. For this reason online training may be an opportunity for people with physical disabilities.

This project aims to develop/enhance a two stage e-training program for computer oriented disabled people on graphics, Web design, MS Office and enhance the e-platform which serves those people to work as a freelance, self-employed or entrepreneur from their home based offices (general name: “virtual assistants”). This two-stage e-training will cover: 1. Training on “how to become a virtual assistant”, that is learning the general principles of home office business and how to work as self-employed (or as “virtual assistants”) in general, 2. Training on specific service fields: CADD - Computer aided drafting detailing, Graphics, Web-design, MS Office.

The idea behind this future efforts is basically to improve the skills and competencies of computer and technical oriented disabled people to train the individual to produce better and competitive outputs in drafting, graphic and Web-design fields which covers almost 40% of design and engineering activities in architectural, civil, mechanical and electrical fields of engineering design projects, Web developments and presentations, which are most vital and essential parts of any engineering, commercial design and presentation activities. Office support positions are also widely used, thus increasing the necessity of profiency and high competencies in Office tools using capabilities.

As this overall activity requires continuous training both in e-environment being the gateway to the e-employment, computer hardware and software as well as related technical disciplines, the quality of output is directly a function of continuous vocational training which is a very significant and extremely important but implicitly integrated part of the project. This vital part will be accessed via the e-LIFE web-portal and e-employment and it will refresh itself by means of continuing inputs from users, that are "disabled virtual assistants". This unique structure of "integrated training and employment" which will renew and improve itself further continuously serving both vocational and employment of disabled people in this few specific activity fields will be a new e-learning model (VET e-center) and guidance for other similar fields.

The e-training packages developed by the consortium are the following:

Module 1 - e-LIFE Virtual Assistant

Module 2 - Improve your skills in MS Office 2010 (Word, Excel, Power Point)

Module 3 - Other Office Utilities

Module 4 - Graphic (Adobe Photoshop and Corel Draw)

Module 5 - e-LIFE web-design (Dreamwaver, Flash and Joomla!)

Module 6 - CADD (Computer aided drafting detailing)
