ADL conference 2015 - Announcement

Electronic materials available remotely, interactive courses, computer simulations are just some of the new facilities widely used in modern armies. Achieving a better, or maintaining established quality of teaching and training in less time and with less material cost is the basic motivation for the use of high-tech solutions in the process of military education and training. Besides a number of other measures, thanks to many years of successful projects on distance learning and the introduction of constructive simulation system of military education and training, Republic of Serbia is ranked among the countries that can quickly respond to defense and security threats of the modern world.
The reason for this conference is to inform the stakeholders of the functions of planning and implementation of training and education in the Serbian MoD and AF with the results of implementation and ongoing activities of the Project introduction of distance learning, as well as future plans for the development of distance learning in Serbian MoD and AF.
This type of education should enable elders to continue their education after completing their training by the end of their professional career, with minimal absence from work.
For us it is five years experience in the use of the Platform for distance learning, which allows all the subjects of training and education to take advantage of new technologies to reduce their own costs while maintaining and improving quality. Center for Simulation and Distance Learning for more than two years has been conducting courses for teachers to make the best possible use of the platform for e-learning, enhance their teaching and make more ​​direct contact with their students and cadets.
Results of courses for the use of the distance learning platform, in which teachers and training providers became capable of using different didactical and pedagogical strategies in the creation of teaching materials, and who have mastered the software to produce interactive multimedia content will be presented at the conference.
In addition, in 2015 we continued a mobile learning, as one of the new concepts of e-learning, which provides access to educational resources that have been tailored for smart-phones and tablet-computers and can be accessed from any point on the globe.
The objectives set:
➢ Understanding the current state of the project "Learning in Serbian MoD and AF,
➢ Understanding of project results,
➢ Introduction to the plans for the period 2014 - 2016,
➢ Introduction to the application of distance learning in foreign armies,
➢ Consideration of wider regional cooperation.
