An open-source platform for all HE teachers

So far, 50 European teachers from various scientific disciplines have been involved in the Project to create content and collect the necessary information and sources. The Hi-Teach platform is almost ready, while the pilot phase on its usability will start in February 2023. The closure of the project and the opening of the Hi-teach platform to the public is scheduled for the end of May 2023. From that moment all teachers will be able to access methodological guides, video pills, teaching and learning methods and strategies, as well as further information materials on the most challenging topics of smart e-learning and e-teaching, namely: designing online lessons, planning activities for students, digital resources, learning based on gamification, innovative movie education based on short and feature films and formative assessment of students' knowledge.
