Develop the blue-print on the content, logic and development of the learning objects on different TVE subjects

Develop prototypes of the digitalized learning objects in formats that can be downloaded on smart cell phones and stand alone versions

Training TVE teacher/student from south eastern states’ institutions on how to develop and use the learning objects for instruction

Develop the web page on the Center for Vocational Technical Education Training and Research (CETVETAR) website, hosted by the University of Nigeria, to upload the digitalized learning objects (LOs)
