Digital textbooks and learning materials

Research and development in Hungary, 2019

Many Hungarian educators, researchers and specialists are working on harnessing pedagogical options enabled by digital technologies to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” - as the promoters of the TECHBOOK project also advocated.
We would like to highlight some typical aims, directions and results of Hungarian research and development through three examples.
The National Portal for Public Education was developed by Hungarian Institute for Educational Research and Development, Eszterházy Károly University. This new portal is Hungary's foremost web-based education platform in which textbooks are available in two versions, for free.
Educational researches aiming at the implementation of electronic learning environments in the public education sphere (1999-2017) were carried out by Department of Media Informatics, Eszterházy Károly University.
The eDia Online Diagnostic Assessment System for utilizing the outstanding power of technology-based assessments was developed by Institute of Education, University of Szeged.
We believe that these examples profoundly represent the work of Hungarian experts and can be used effectively for the preparation of recommendations made by the TECHBOOK project.
