Abstract: The Institute for Energy and Transport of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, jointly with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), have developed an innovative multimedia knowledge package which is based on systematically collected and consolidated knowledge of top-experts in WWER (i.e. the Russian version of a pressurised water reactor) Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) Embrittlement and is meant to support training in the field. The tool is addressed to nuclear engineers and researcher who need to be trained on WWER RPV Embrittlement issues. The modules provide very compact knowledge; an expert is recorded while giving a lecture (usually composed of 10-20 topic related questions answered) and his speech is subtitled. The presentation is powered with eye-catching animations that make simpler the learning process and that attract the user attention. At the end of each lecture the trainee can test his understanding on the topic with a multiple-choice questionnaire and receives a score based on his performance. A powerful search engine is built in the package to ensure the easy navigation across all Modules in, text, video and sound. These multimedia modules are designed as an on-line resource and include the possibility to easily share and discuss on social medias (i.e. twitter, Facebook, etc.) the selected presentation/slide. The package is completed and programmed in HTML 5 language to allow high flexibility and make the content browsable also on tablets and phones. For classroom training an offline version can be generated.
