The idea of the project is to utilise modern methods using social media for improvement of vocational knowledge. VET professionals use traditional ways of education which lowers effectiveness of learning process and does not allow to develop IT competences. Due to rapid development of Web2.0 services, and need for providing attractive and high quality learning content, a slow movement towards integration of learning systems and social media applications arises. Social media applications such as Twitter, blogs and Facebook are used more and more in our daily personal and professional lives. Educational institutions are becoming increasingly aware that such applications can be effectively integrated into their learning delivery systems but very few are actually using these applications to innovate their training systems and to offer more learner-centred services.
