IMAILE took a holistic view of ICT within education and e-learning. The project brought together users and suppliers to develop products focusing on the needs of teachers and students, ensuring modern classrooms are equipped for the twenty first century. The IMAILE project is followed on by the LEA project. Find out more about LEA here.
