We are exploiting synergies between the participation of teachers, learners and content connected through open educational environments. We are building new services around pedagogies and content aggregation, annotation, mash-ability, verification, analysis, search, media sharing and recommendation.

Going beyond digital products

Government decided to open up possibilities of education in an open, innovative and sustainable learning environment facilitated by innovative use of ICTs. 

This will enable individuals to gain knowledge and develop skills, key competences, as well as competences of the 21st century that are essential for a successful integration in society.

The goals are to develop high quality didactical aids or tools, (e.g. multimedia and interactive e-material, mobile and web based applications, e-portfolio), and accordingly, adapt the existing educational approaches.

Set up an open platform of information technology, e-content, e-services, pedagogical concepts and approaches, added-value models, as well as motivation mechanisms.

And finally, raise the level of digital competence and enhance the use of ICT within the overall educational system.
