Long distance design education applied to rural women

Margaret Catherine Perivoliotis-Chryssovergis, Technological Educational Institute of Athens, Greece


Abstract
The paper addresses a distance-learning/e-learning proposal applied to unemployed women in remote/rural areas. It is a pilot study focusing on those women who are professionally or occasionally occupied with the production of artefacts without having any education in design, marketing or management due to their residential location or to their life-style constraints. New education strategies were developed engaging computer and information and communication technology. It is a proposed solution to the exclusion and unemployment that is still rife in many East Mediterranean/Middle-East countries. The overall proposal and the results of the application among selected participating rural women are here presented.
