Project outputs:
The main goal of the project is to create a web platform and a mobile application, which would contain all available professional didactic materials for teaching medical Slovak/Czech/Latvian language in online form and professional materials for the target group of foreign health professionals living in these countries.

As part of generating the results of the project, the platform and app will be tested by 15 doctors, 15 nurses, 15 dentists and 15 pharmacists in each of the countries. The testing will be conducted online and will have 4 phases, as well as a training course. Testing and platform development will run in parallel. The teaching materials will also include the development of a methodology for teachers specialising in online teaching for medically oriented Slovak/Czech/Latvian and vocational subjects.

Once the Phase 1 platform and mobile app have been created, testing of the first phase of the online preparatory course will begin. In parallel, however, work will begin on the technical and content development of Phase 2. Once each phase has been tested, the platform and mobile app will be modified based on feedback, comments and recommendations. The web and mobile applications will be interlinked.

The platform will contain information for each of the participating countries - information on the possibility of diploma recognition, information on preparatory language courses and, of course, study materials, which will be published online and available. Throughout the project, a methodology for teachers of these courses for online teaching will be developed, which will also be gradually tested and adapted according to teachers' feedbacks and recommendations. At the moment we consider it important that this methodology is adapted to online teaching, as more and more courses are being taught online and teachers often lack the materials to teach them.

Throughout the duration of the project, a tutorial will also be created for the students so that they know how to prepare properly for the exam.

One of the last results is the creation of a study that will reflect on the state of the health sector and, based on the information obtained, will prepare a proposal for measures for the government of the Slovak Republic.
