This report studies the potential of these new online activities for lifelong learning as part of a larger project launched by Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) with DG Education and Culture. The overall project studies what contributes to the emergence and success of learning in ICT-enabled communities, and how these communities could promote quality and innovation in lifelong learning and education systems in Europe. The project aims to contribute with research and policy suggestions to support the four strategic objectives of European education and training, which are to:
• make lifelong learning and learner mobility a reality;
• improve the quality and efficiency of education and training;
• promote equity, social cohesion and active citizenship;
• enhance creativity and innovation, including entrepreneurship, at all levels of education and training.
