Students ages 14 to 19 in Slovakia can learn about the new national currency and the basics of banking and finance thanks to an e-learning course developed by the Slovak Republic's Ministry of Education in collaboration with CISCO.
The course is the first online curriculum developed for secondary schools in Slovakia. The four learning modules, which can be completed in about two hours, are focused on the Eurozone and the European Union, the euro as a currency, the national implementation plan, and banking and financial terminology. Following the completion of the online training, students can take a quiz to test their newly acquired knowledge. So far, more than 9,000 students from 240 schools have completed the course.
