The project aims to facilitate the exchange of information and sharing of best practice throughout the Consortium of EU and Croatian partners. Information and communication technology offers many functional benefits and opportunities, but the challenge is to find appropriate / best way to use technology in concrete, particular situation in Croatia and to adopt European experience and practice.
The EU side of consortium includes 8 universities with respectable experience with implementation of e-learning in their countries. Most of consortium members have respectable experience in conducting EU projects and Tempus projects in particular. Efficient and productive partnership of University of Zagreb with Technical University of Vienna, as well as with University of Vienna, K.U. Leuven and University of Edinburgh was exhibited in previous Tempus projects.
Three Croatian universities participate in the consortium with the main goal to implement e-learning as a tool to improve quality of teaching and learning.
