Consequently, thanks to this agreement UNINETTUNO expands: the new Technological Pole in Baku will serve as exam center as well as access point to the online platform for students who do not have a suitable connection to follow the courses delivered by UNINETTUNO’s platform. Additionally, the Pole will serve as center to train the Azeri teachers in the use of the new technologies and in the production of the videolessons.
UNINETTUNO is also partner in the Erasmus+ European project, entitled LPEB, carried on, among others, with the Ministry of Education of Azerbaijan, which is aimed at launching a distance degree course in "Energy and environmental performance”, delivered fully online on UNINETTUNO’s learning platform. Thanks to this project, for the first time in Azerbaijan, they propose the development of university study course based on distance teaching.
