Cooperation With Other Institutions

We think that collaboration and partnership with other high education institutions in Serbia and partners from other countries and armies is the key to the project’s success.

 

Cooperation with academic institutions in Serbia

Establishing partner relations with other academic institutions in Serbia aims at sharing experience and software. It is significant to accept open standards for common usage and distance learning software interoperability in order to develop these relations. Furthermore, legal regulations for the cooperation need to be set up.
The process of accreditation of the Military Academy, the process which makes this academic institution an active and official member of the Serbian education system, is one of the significant elements of improving the cooperation between this institution and other academic institutions in Serbia.

 

Cooperation with foreign centers

Partnership and cooperation with foreign armies distance learning centers is a very important precondition for the overall success of the project. The cooperation has already been made with the distance learning centers of the Kingdom of Norway, Great Britain and Check Republic. Our delegations have visited these centers and we have exchanged both positive and negative experience.

Considering our positive experience in successful cooperation with our partners, plans have been made for further broadening of our working together. That process would mirror itself in:

  • establishing cooperation at lower levels in order to provide expert assistance while founding and organizing the Center for distance learning;
  • providing expert assistance concerning education of teachers and technical support teams involved in the distance learning program;
  • providing support while acquiring the standards and protocols for teaching materials;
  • the exchange of teaching materials in electronic form.

We are also planning to establish cooperation with some other countries, which are experienced in organizing distance learning projects.

   

Distance Learning and Partnership for Peace (PfP)

Partnership for Peace is a political initiative established jointly by the NATO and 26 countries. Its goal is building peace, liberty, democracy and security in Europe by promoting democratic values and mutual trust through collaboration, stronger democratic control of armed forces and transparency in the area of security, and enabling the member countries to participate in joint operations under the auspices of the UN or OEBS.

PfP goals are promoted by distance learning and creation of basic courses in the fields of international relations, security, international law etc. Furthermore, IT and language courses aim at increasing the member countries capability of participating in joint operations under the auspices of the UN, OEBS and PfP. Development of e-learning software (PfP Learning Management System) based on SCORM standard makes the technology that can be used jointly available to all the project partners.

PfP Consortium ADL Working Group of the Defence Academies and Security Studies Institutes create an institutionalized environment for e-learning activities under the auspices of PfP. Collaboration in developing e-learning software within a working group represents practical implementation of the principle of security through cooperation.
