In the spring
of 2001 CARNet assisted the opening of two computer classrooms
in Osijek and Rijeka. The idea behind this is to ensure that students
in these two university towns gain a chance to attend Internet
courses and have access to computer and Internet outside regular
In the attempt
to find and recruite sufficient nubmer of trainers who could successfully
run Internet courses, CARNet organized a new round of Training
the Trainers courses in these two towns. One part of Training
the Trainers was organized as an on line pre-course. This means
that participants met and worked on-line before they actually
met in the real face to face course. Pre-course was designed and
created mostly by CARNet people and was managed by WebCT courseware.
For most participants this was the first experience with distance
education and they found it interesting and mind opening.
It is the
intention of this paper to present the experience of the pre-course
authors team: objectives, activities, statistics etc. Some feedback
from participants will be included.
