The MEFANET project (MEdical FAculties NETwork) has initiated international, effective and open cooperation among ten medical faculties in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. One of the elementary goals of this educational network is to advance medical teaching 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' autentication/authorization, 3. four-dimensional quality assessment.
Author's professional CV
Daniel Schwarz graduated at Brno University of Technology in 2000 with Ing. (MSc. eq.) degree in Electronics and Communication Technology. Then he studied for Ph.D. degree at the same university at the Department of Biomedical Engineering in Biomedical Electronics and Biocybernetics. He finished his studies with the thesis entitled Automated Morphometry of MRI Brain Images with the Use of Deformable Registration in 2005. Since then he has been working for the Institute of Biostatistics and Analyses, Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk University. He focuses his research on medical image processing, predictive modeling and pattern recognition. He teaches Linear and adaptive data processing – a subject associated to the study programme Mathematical Biology. Besides his research activities focused on neuroimaging, he is also interested in applications of information and communication technologies in medical education. Since 2007 he has been a member of the Coordination Committee of MEFANET (MEdical FAculties NETwork). Here, he is responsible for developing the uniform e-publishing platform of the network. Further, as the head of organizing committee, he participated in the last four years on organizing conferences MEFANET 2007–2010.
