By creating an interactive e-learning portal in the field of sustainable development, entrepreneurial skills and management, we supported the qualification of secondary school students. The project was a response to increasing demands placed on secondary schools as a result of the introduction of school educational programmes and efforts to increase the qualifications of secondary school students for the possibility of better employment on the labour market. Materials produced tried to attract students not only with interesting content, but also in an interactive form through talking characters, practical examples, tests, overviews, etc.

Goal of the project was to create an e-learning website with three modules:

  • environment and sustainable development,
  • business skills,
  • project management.

These learning modules supported and improved education at secondary schools. Content of these modules were interactive materials for studying along with interactive e-learning teaching aids for topics of different subjects taught at secondary schools. Creation of educational materials was conducted using experience and help of teachers from the participating schools and also teachers from other schools with an interest in including learning modules into their teaching. The following step was to provide an e-learning website to all secondary schools that would have an interest in using it. All materials and modules were tried out at participating secondary schools.

Conclusions of the project: 

Outcome of the project was an e-learning website with modules mentioned above in the form of an interactive and practical materials source for teaching of various subjects at secondary schools.
