Edupoint

Edupoint is a unique centre uniting all CARNet educational systems related to information technologies, ranging from training end users in networking and using services, through educating system engineers in the field of computer and information system management, to educating and advising teachers and lecturers of other professions on information technology supported teaching.

The mission of Edupoint is to design and distribute knowledge about the Internet and its implementation in order to raise the level of information literacy in the Croatian academic community, as well as continued development and improvement of the quality of studying and teaching performed in the system.

The preparations for Edupoint began in 2000 and its full realisation is expected in 2001. The following methods will be used: reviews of the current printed and digital materials, portals for single groups of users and their interests, printed and digital educational material, courses, seminars, counselling activities for individual needs, care about registered attendants and their interests, information about the novelties, etc.

The basic programs that should be intensified, reviewed and started by using the mentioned methods include:

  • educational system for end users;
  • Training the Trainers (TtT) program;
  • educational system for system engineers;
  • distance learning.

Courses for end usersDuring the calendar year 2000 the co-operation between the University Computing Centre and CARNet continued regarding courses for end users. There were 193 courses held in Zagreb and 41 courses in Split. Out of a total of 234 courses, 147 dealt with networking and the rest were courses related to basic usage of Microsoft software products (MS Windows, MS Office).

A particularly significant result that was achieved was the complete redesign of the course curricula at the beginning of the academic year 2000/2001.
