Project objectives

The major objective is not to offer the members particular instruction or to give them some concrete skills, but to demonstrate the power of the new technologies in the Internet and to show the amazing possibilities of the web nowadays.

Firstly, we want to inform students and teachers about the instruments, the Internet can give them. They don’t use these possibilities simply because they don’t know about their existence.

Secondly, we’ll create the web platform, wherefrom every person interested in some concrete topic will be able to learn all about it, find proper sites and communities, and get expert consultations.
