IDEC is among the most extensive distance learning content holders in Greece.
Our distance learning materials are available, as a rule, in diverse languages. Most of them are delivered either through the web or through CD ROMs.
We also own the Thalys web-portal in which we present a small selection of materials. In the coming months, an updated version of Thalys with additional materials and a new user friendly layout will be published.
We develop distance learning materials and e-learning platforms both for our customers to cover their in-house training needs, and for enriching our own services with additional elements (e.g. combination of consultancy and training).
