Abstract: The paper describes an approach to providing a learning continuum for entrepreneurial experts using information technology. The rationales for this approach are the rapid changes of expert knowledge, especially in engineering disciplines. Starting with academic education of future experts and continuing with their life-long learning, the approach relies on blending academic and entrepreneurial knowledge by means of technology enhanced learning. To that end, a network of organisations is being formed where open educational resources will be published and shared. The main goals to be reached by this network, as well as its salient features are described. Special attention is given to the language support system, which provides for multilinguality of the resources, namely their publishing in different languages.

Keywords: learning continuum; blended learning; technology enhanced learning; lifelong learning; learning capacity; academic knowledge; entrepreneurial knowledge; open educational resources; language support systems; multilingual resources.
