Welcome to LEMON Learning Modules Online Platform

LEMON logoThe Council of Europe Education Department has been developing the online learning platform since 2017 offering practical teaching and training resources to education professionals across Europe. The resources focus on the missions of the Council of Europe - protection and promotion of human rights, democracy and the rule of law throughout Europe.

The courses reflect the priority areas of the Education Programme of the Council of Europe and topics range from democratic competences to digital citizenship, from media literacy to bullying. While they are mostly targeting education professionals, they are also of interest to general public and do not require special preparation.

The classical self-learning courses vary in length from 5 to 25 hours, catering for different needs of different categories of learners. The courses from the special ‘Keys’ series are targeting busy professionals and provide concentrated information within maximum 2 hours of self-learning. All courses are offered free-of-charge and can be accessed through a simple registration on the Council of Europe online platform.
