The digital learning resources and the e-learning play nowadays an essential role in vocational education and training (VET). Internet provides an exponentially growing number of freely accessible vocational training materials on different topics and in different fields of practice. However, the materials are not structured adequately in order to support international collaboration among the stakeholders. To turn information into knowledge and knowledge into practice, the e-learning platform developed has the aim to validate the data collected over the Internet and to contextualize and communicate it. The current paper presents the concept of creating the e-learning platform and implementing educational videos as supportive tools into vocational education and training in the field of environmental protection. This is a part of the intellectual outputs created on VIVET project: “Video Supported Vocational Education and Training” within the frame of Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project (No. 2016-1-DE02-KA202-003465) coordinated by FORUM Berufsbildung – Berlin, Germany in partnership with vocational and adult training institutions, higher education institutions and NGOs from Bulgaria, Germany, Italy and Spain. Being the initiators of such an important project, the transnational consortium plays a leading role in fostering innovative solutions for vocational education and training within Europe. The role of the University of Agribusiness and Rural Development (UARD) within the project is to design a training course in Environmental Protection.
