This article presents the Helsinki-Lappi project (HelLa) co-run by two Finnish universities: the University of Helsinki, and the University of Lapland. The general aim of the project is to study, develop, and assess how different training programs relate to educational use of information and communication technologies (ICT). The specific aims of the project are to analyze (i) how the pedagogical models of network-based education (NBE) can be seen in educational use of ICT programs; (ii) what kind of design, quality, and assessment principles can be elaborated in NBE (iii) how a didactic network environment and NBE support media skills and the development of the individual and the community; and (iv) how national training programs in media education and educational use of ICT can be streamlined and made accessible to the international audience. The outcomes of the project will be models and didactic principles, which can be used in design and assessing NBE.
