The current amount of information available on different media and the strong interdisciplinarity of many technological processes makes it difficult for the younger generation to learn in depth and to understand the requirements of a specific process. A high level of expertise on every technological process exists at the level of senior experts (engineers aged over 50 and up to 75) which are willing to share this in a proper framework. The paper presents a learning management system (LMS) developed and customized as an interactive on-line platform that can bridge the gap between generations transferring the knowledge from senior experts to developing companies. This comprehensive platform provides experts the tools and resources to communicate and the companies the means to obtain relevant and personalized information achieving both a comprehensive industrial development and support and purpose for the senior experts.
