Launching MOOCs

E-learning support center has started the operation of the e-learning platform for MOOCs (Massive online open courses). We got inspired by existing praxis at foreign universities, where in this way are the interesting fields of science made accessible to the general public and results of their work are presented. As a kick off project the course Italian front in 1915 – 1917 along the Isonzo river in English was created. This course is currently opened together with the Czech course Sleep medicine.
