Conference " Distance Learning in Serbian MoD and Serbian Army - 2013"

On December 13 2013 Military Academy will be organizing third annual conference on e-learning. "Distance learning in Serbian MoD and Serbian Army - 2013" will take place at Center for simulations and distance learning, National defence school, Military academy.

Modern information technology and computer literacy are enablers of education and training improvement, both in civilian and military educational systems. Remotely available electronic materials, interactive courses and computer simulations are just some of the contents widely used in modern armies. The motives are obvious : providing a better quality training and education in less time and with less material costs.

The reason for organizing this meeting is to inform the holders of planning and implementation of training and education in Serbian MoD and Serbian Army with the results and ongoing operations within the “Introduction of distance learning” project, as well as future plans for the development of distance learning in Serbian MoD and SA . This kind of education is to enable elders to continue their training by the end of a professional career, with minimal time off from work .

Platform for distance learning, initiated in 2010, gave an opportunity to stakeholders of education and training to take advantage of new technologies and reduce their own costs while maintaining and improving quality. Center for Simulation and distance learning for over a year has been implementing training courses for teachers in order to give them the best possible ways of using the platform for learning, enhance their teaching and make direct contact with the audience and cadets .

With the goal of informing the defense system staff, during this year  we made a campaign in garrisons and garrison towns: Novi Sad, Nis, Kraljevo, Krusevac, Pozarevac, Zajecar and Vranje. In addition to promotion, we made a multimedia material and distributed it on compact discs through whole MoD and Army organization. We conducted military professional training in several MoD and Army units.

Experience tells us that change comes slowly. To reach it requires a change in mindset, recognizing the value of using modern technology. This process takes time, persistence and patience, and above all synergy of all stakeholders of education and training, who have recognized the benefits that distance learning offers to its customers, whether they are in the role of a teacher or a student.

The goals set for conference:

  • Understanding the current state of the project "Distance Learning in Serbian MoD and Serbian Army",
  • Introducing project results,
  • Introducing the plans for next period of 2014. – 2016,
  • Insight to application of distance learning in foreign armies,
  • Considering the need for education and training of professional members of MoD and Army.
