The Internet and its non-linear fabric of multimedia information have changed they way cultural artifacts, such as historical documents or pieces of artwork, are perceived, archived, and managed. The mind does not belong to only one person; rather it is a part of the social and cultural environment a person lives in. This environment has been extended and modified by digital media in many ways. Learning and education, therefore, also have to become more flexible, holistic and intercultural. One example is ISNM's educational program on "e.culture" funded by the European Social Fund (ESF). Background information, projects, best practice examples, learning material, and online courses have been developed about the use and creation of digital media in culture. This overview was also the starting point for the creation of a Web-based training (WBT) which introduces and evaluates innovative technological applications in cultural education. This WBT employs Web 2.0 technologies while providing tools for social tagging and social bookmarking.
