The awards are consistent and challenging for all the participants in the conference. We have been strongly supported in this activity by the software house SIVECO Romania, an extremly active player on the educational software market, who granted 8 awards. We are very pleased for their being again at our side this year”, says prof. Vlada, the event organizer.

During the exhibition –which took place simultanuously, SIVECO Romania presenetd the eLearning platform AEL, recently nominee by the European Commission for the European IST Prize.

Both professors and students were extremely interested in AEL and visited, therefore, SIVECO stand during the breaks. The students even experimented the e-Learning methods by Math, Physics and Chemistry on-line tests. The future Math teachers were delighted to see this modern educational tool they’ll be able to use with their future students right from the beginning of their teaching career. They appreciated, on one hand, AEL interactivity level and facilities and regretted, on the other hand, the fact that they could not use such a learning tool when they were pupils.

„The organizers  - The Mathematics and Computer Science Faculty, a traditional academic institution, to which, as a graduate, I will always be very emotionally attached, deserves all our aplauses for the brilliant way it succeedded to turn into a tribune for computer assisted learning promotion”, says Radu Jugureanu, eContent Manager within SIVECO Romania.
