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

The creation of project results will also include testing of the platform and application by 15 doctors, 15 nurses, 15 dentists and 15 pharmacists in each of the countries. Testing will take place online and will have 4 phases, as well as a professional training course. Testing and development of the platform will take place in parallel. The teaching materials will also include the creation of a methodology for teachers specializing in online teaching for medically oriented Slovak/Czech/Polish and professional subjects.

After the 1st stage of the platform and mobile application is created, the testing of the first stage of the online preparatory course will start. In parallel, however, work will begin on the creation of phase no. 2 on the technical and content side. After testing each phase, the platform and mobile application will be modified based on feedback, comments and recommendations. The web and mobile application will be connected to each other.

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 that will be published online and available. During the entire project, the methodology for the teachers of these courses will be developed for online teaching, which will also be gradually tested and adjusted according to the feedback and recommendations of the teachers. Currently, we consider it important that this methodology be adapted to online teaching, as more and more courses are being conducted online and teachers often lack materials on how to teach.

During the entire duration of the project, a tutorial will be created for students so that they can properly prepare for the exam.

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