The project CRITON is a transnational cooperation project to enhance the learning process in distance education systems and e-learning, using assessment methods for predicting the progress of students and to improve evaluation methods leading to better learning outcomes and more personalized learning.

Nowadays, distance education is a formalized learning system specifically designed to be carried out remotely by using ICT. To this sense, communication is a crucial factor in distance education because of physical distance between student and instructor, which often isolates and impairs the process of learning.

Hybrid learning blends face-to-face interaction with online learning and customarily involves the delivery of curricular materials, access to resources, submission of assignments, project based learning, and online discussions that may be asynchronous or synchronous in nature.

The project CRITON will try to reduce the number of people leaving these types of training (distance or hybrid) or fail at the final evaluation process  through accurately and timely prediction of the performance of trainees.

In the project participate 7 partners from 6 different countries of Europe (Greece, Austria, Finland, Lithuania, Sweden, Germany). Lead partner of the CRITON project is CTI & Press “Diophantus” and Project Coordinator is Prof. John Garofalakis.
