Geographically at the heart of Europe, and yet on the edge of growing European Union, the Czech Republic knows that its looming EU membership means it must embrace IT and its attendant disciplines of training and e-learning, along with the efficiencies they bring. But this country of just ten million people — better known for its artists than its programmers — is, as yet, wary of technological commitment. Andrea Baresova, e-learning specialist at corporate IT training specialist Nextsoft, wrote the first book on e-learning in Czech and is a member of the Czech eLearning Network. This is a body made up of representatives from companies such as Microsoft, Cisco and Hewlett-Packard, and is developing e-learning materials for both teachers and students.
