Strengthening the cooperation in education and health care among medical faculties: the MEFANET project experience and its extensions

The MEFANET project (MEdical FAculties NETwork) has initiated international, effective and open cooperation among all medical faculties in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. One of the elementary goals of the project is to advance medical teaching and learning with the use of modern information and communication technologies. As an instrument for that, MEFANET has decided to develop an original and uniform solution for educational web portals which are used, together with a central gate, to offer and share digital educational content. Three fundamental principles of the educational web platform will be described: 1. medical disciplines linker, 2. federative framework for users' authentication/authorization, 3. four-dimensional quality assessment. Recent developments have focused on a new set of tools for multidimensional assessment of published contents quality. The following four dimensions are included: A. review, B. typological classification, C. the level of the target groups, D. users’ self-study score. This 4-D assessment promises wider range of tools for the organization of published contents, as well as the opportunity to present teaching materials provided with expert commentary from selected medical professional societies.
