It is now a part of 'Erasmus+ 2014-2020' and has gradually been expanding all over Europe providing both teachers and students with innovative and creative ideas, learning/teaching experience, multimedia applications and interactive tools.This research paper aims to introduce eTwinning Online Learning Platform as one of the biggest communities for schools in Europe and discuss University of Palermo's involvement in 'eTwinning Teachers Training Pilot Project' in academic year 2014/15.
