Achievement of such a demanding objective requires the approach that would interconnect the knowledge obtained at school and the knowledge obtained from the employer, forming thus a single interface.
The Atos company has created the portal through which students from the selected study branches access the newest and most up-to-date information. They can access as much as 1,450 lectures, read 3,900 pages of texts, watch 6,060 minutes of videos, and listen to 24,200 minutes of educational texts. The portal is available via computers and tablets and the education thus acquires a brand new dimension. To launch such portal, it requires active participation of all stakeholders.
