COOPERATION IN FORMING THE CENTER FOR SIMULATIONS AND DISTANCE LEARNING

The visit of the work team of the Norwegian College of Defense to the Military Academy which lasted for several days ended today. The visit aimed to confirm and finalize the project of “Distance Learning within the Serbian Ministry of Defense and Serbian Army”. Entrusted with the task of realizing the project is the Center for Simulations and Distance Learning at the Military Academy.

The Head of the Military Academy, Brigadier Mladen Vuruna, PhD, greeted the delegation consisting of Major Atle Svendsen from the Norwegian College of Defense and the Head of the Jefferson Institute, Aaron Presnall, stressing the importance of this project.

One conclusion of the work teams’ discussion was the initiative for passing the regulations in the field of Distance Learning, defining the necessary investments in hardware infrastructure and other necessities, as well as providing intellectual and expert help in this field.

The project of Distance Learning, intended for the members of the Ministry of Defense and Serbian Army, enables the making of equal opportunities for specialization and development throughout the career. The several-year work on realization of this project was finally closed by the agreement on providing help and mutual cooperation among the Ministry of Defense of the Kingdom of Norway, the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Serbia, and the Jefferson Institute.

On behalf of the Military Academy, the expert talks, lasting from 25th to 29th January 2010, were led by Lieutenant-colonel Goran Šimić, PhD, from the Department of Military Electronic Systems and Major Zoran Jeremić, PhD, from the Center for Simulations and Distance Learning at the Military Academy. 

The Ministries of Defense of the Republic of Serbia and the Kingdom of Norway are signing a bilateral agreement on this year’s mutual cooperation on 12th February 2010, which will define the fundamental aspects of the cooperation in the project of Distance Learning. After the signing of the agreement, the official realization of the project will start in the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Serbia, supported by the Ministry of Defense of the Kingdom of Norway.

The project is supposed to last for two years and afterwards the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Serbia will take over the obligation of further realization and funding the project.
