Anotācija Young people, who are the fundamental asset of our economies and societies across the world, face a real and increasing difficulty in finding a decent job with each day. Three additional merging factors are worsening the youth employment crisis even further, causing challenges while transiting to decent jobs, namely (i) numbers of discouraged youth, in other words, young people, who are neither in education nor in employment or training (NEETs) are increasing, (ii) unemployment among university graduates of tertiary education in general are rising and (iii) potential NEET group students, especially in the 1st year, who, apart from reduced study fees, require extra motivation and moral support from educators. What can be done to solve the dropout crisis with microblogging possibilities? Many educators have found that microblog Twitter is a great help tool to increase student participation and further engagement in lifelong education once they have left the classroom. The use of e-learning in itself does not constitute an enhancement of the quality of teaching and learning, but it is a potential enabler for such enhancement. The provided examples of good practice illustrate how certain initiatives address challenges and seek to effectively engage learners. The study aim - to make young people NEET problem analysis in order to understand their motivation to engage in distance learning process. The first insurance against unemployment is quality education and training. Distance learning project eBig3 is example of unique way to promote reintegrating young people into the labour market and education too.
