It is very important to note that participants have been very interested and actively involved in the event. They had a lot of questions and suggestions for the future use of the JCC courses and how to develop this concept for the future. They were interested in educational materials with good ideas for the sustainability. Discussion related to the first presentation of Mr. Dalibor Gonda (Introduction to Edu 4.0) was also very interesting with question focused on possibility to apply “the flipped classroom” approach for the course with big number of participants. There was discussion after the second presentation of Mr. Michal Kvet (Introduction to the Learning Design web environment). The meeting participants discussed different topics related with the web environment. Discussion related to the JCCs presentations was very interesting as well. Questions were focused to specific courses and to experience of teachers and students. IT representative gave a proposition to develop the JCC in form of cooperation for 4 semesters (master degree study) in the frame of student project development – cooperation of IT company, teachers and students from different institutions (countries).
