In the rapidly evolving landscape of education, digital platforms are playing a pivotal role in reshaping traditional learning methods. The Regio.Digi.Hub (Project number: 2021-1-RO01-KA220-VET-000028118), an Erasmus+ co-funded project, with its innovative online learning platform, recently garnered significant attention and praise during a multiplier event held at Sofia University.

On October 23, 2023, a multiplier event for the Regio.Digi.Hub project took place at Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”. The basis of this innovative project (project number: Project number: 2021-1-RO01-KA220-VET-000028118) is the creation of an online learning platform and opportunities for increasing the qualification of professionals in the field of regional development. 

The organizers from Budakov Films, one of the partners of the Regio.Digi.Hub project, presented the E-learning platform in the spacious hall 19 of the Faculty of Journalism and Mass Communication. 

Among the attendees were many young people, students, teachers and specialists in the field of communications, who were interested to learn more about the project and the topic of regional development. The event was widely publicized through various channels, including email invitations, promotional posters, social media and digital screens at SU. A total of 37 participants joined and had the opportunity to get acquainted with various presentations and videos, created within the project, as well as to participate in discussions and feedback sessions

The evaluations from the participants were positive, and many of them showed additional interest in Regio.Digi.Hub and registered on the learning platform. The content in Bulgarian language is fully ready and anyone who registers can start with the courses. The students of Sofia University also gave an international character to the meeting, as in addition to 35 Bulgarians, there were participants from North Macedonia and Greece. 

The moderator of the whole event was Asst. Prof. Yordan Karapenchev, PhD, who presented the electronic educational platform and the website, developed with European funding.

Within the Q&A session, the participants actively discussed the practical implementation of the online courses, the specific modules and the potential impact on the development of the participants. The discussion also touched on issues of possible partnerships with educational institutions, such as Sofia University, in whose halls the presentation of the project took place. This is also the last multiplier event for the Regio.Digi.Hub project, but the interest that the training modules created among the attendees are a good indication of the prospects for the created platform.
