O1 Needs analysis of the improving the professional skills in laser safety.
Creating questionnaires to determine the knowledge and skills required by workers/operators for safe working conditions during operation of laser systems. This questionnaire helped us to resolve the required competencies needed by the laser technology operators themselves and other workers in the field of photonics and laser technology.
O2 Identification of the main themes of the new modules for improving the knowledge and skills of the laser users on laser safety.
Based on the analysis of labor market needs and the analysis of the needs of workers in the field of photonics and laser technology, the project team defined the content of the modules for improving the competencies and skills in the field of laser safety.
O3 Selection of the e-learning environment.
Selected the type of virtual e-learning environment, that is in high degree relevant to the needs of project’s objectives and activities. The virtual e-learning environment has complete set of functionalities for providing efficient training of target groups, friendly user interface, possibilities for adding new functions/features.
