eTelestia

Introduction

eTelestia, is a global online network that provides eLearning in fashion and clothing.

The training courses are based on eLearning packages developed by a partnership of European Colleges and Universities, using interactive multimedia for self-training on pattern making, fashion design, sewing and the structure and process of a virtual clothing factory.

The courses are organized in a modular way and each component (daily lesson) is a building block on a basic Core Application. You will be sent the Core Application on CD-ROM. Once you have installed it on your computer you can start to download your daily class lesson, which will begin to build your virtual eTelestia classroom on your computer.

This eLearning course greatly accelerates the learning as the animations and interactive procedures included demonstrate all the processes and procedures of pattern drafting, fashion drawing, and sewing.

During your training, this website will be used as a Communication Platform to aid the learning process. Tools like the Online Tutor, the Illustrated Fashion/Clothing Glossary and the Course Profile Card are available only online on the eTelestia website.

However, all of the eTelestia modules will be downloaded on your computer and you can study them offline.

Who can study

The eTelestia studies are perfect for you if you want to acquire employable skills, improve on a particular skill or simply love designing and want to learn more about your hobby. The eTelestia courses are suitable for you:

If you have no prior knowledge and wish to learn by hand:

  • how to construct block patterns and patterns adaptations (Pattern Making) for womenswear, menswear and/or childrenswear,
  • how to produce clothing, designs and technical sketches (Fashion Design), to develop both your technical and/or creative skills,
  • how to make up and sew a garment to perfection (Sewing),
  • how a clothing factory and its product line is organized and run (Virtual Factory).
  • If you already have prior knowledge in some or all areas described above and wish to expand or update your skills.
  • If you wish to learn Skill Snacks for your own personal use (e.g. how to make skirt blocks, or trousers.)

How can I study

When you register for an eTelestia course you should expect a structured interactive learning experience. Remember that following the course instructions guarantees the best results.

When you register to start a course, you will be provided with the Core Application Software on CD-ROM. When you install the Core Application on your computer you can start downloading all the modules of the course. You will need internet access only to use the eTelestia website and to download your daily class sessions. However, you do not need to be online to study the course modules.

What kind of study space

We advise you to prepare your own learning environment workspace before you start this course.

Along with the computer, you will need a worktable on which to draft your patterns and/or designs, or a sewing machine for the Sewing Course. You will also need appropriate drafting paper, fine pencil, eraser, tape measure, pins, scissors etc. and the corresponding AB tools and templates, which will be provided in a Starter Pack together with the Core Application CD-ROM.
