When it comes to digital skills, societies experience a growing divide. Digital needs are being recognized in virtually every industry and digital skills are becoming an important factor in the building of organizations' market advantage. Managers expect job candidates to achieve a satisfactory work performance in the digital environment shortly after onboarding. All employees are expected to maintain performance at a relatively constant level, regardless of changes made in this environment. This phenomenon has also been noticed by the educational technology products market, also referred to as EdTech, which is believed to be the largest and most profitable digital sector these days. The project implemented by the authors aims to develop an approach and software that meet these trends. The team conducts research on an IT solution to support office operation using a computer and business software. Even though the project reflects a niche in the EdTech area, but it is part of this global, rapidly growing market. The essence of the project is to provide the employee with quanta of knowledge in the just-in-time mode. The employee works efficiently with a software if they know what to do in the next step. Otherwise, they stop and look for answers to their questions. The project aims to automatically provide answers in real time in case they are needed, which is important from a human point of view. An eyetracker located on the monitor enclosure is used to identify the condition of the user. The researchers put forward several hypotheses that are currently being verified in the course of work. According to one of them, it is possible to automatically identify the need for help based on several parameters, including eye movement. The article presents the results of the first series of tests. It is now possible to develop a method that automatically identifies the need for help; the focus is now on developing another method to identify the screen object associated with the place where the user was lost. The solution to this problem seems less demanding, as the team will refer to the experience at the development project of the WIZLINK product for building bots. The result of the project-a methodology and software for delivering job-related content to facilitate business software use-is expected in 2021. It is then that the product tests will start, enabling conclusions on the behavior of all methods included in the product.

In a relatively short time, information and communication technology has spread worldwide not only in business world like production and services but also in most social sectors and private life. In this regard, for example, research has underlined the potential and effectiveness for social media, mobile phones, and the Internet in general, to improve social inclusion and social participation practices for vulnerable social groups that are often fooled by inaccurate or manipulative posts they see online, because they were never taught how to fact-check, or how to discern "fake news". The paper presents the primary results of two ongoing exchange of good practices ERASMUS+ projects that intend to support inclusive education and digital skills, improving the competences in digital social inclusion of social educators and social volunteers. The two structured questionnaires passed to adults and youth people gives a better analysis of the Internet preferences regarding searching for information, communication with the environment and using Information and Communication Technology in the informal and non-formal education. Therefore, what communication channels are selected and what are the preferences associated with the use of mobile applications in the dynamically changing reality. The changes taking place in 2019-2020 in the above areas will also be analysed. The research was carried out, in each case, December 2019-January 2020. To conduct the survey, the Google forms tool was used to create an online questionnaire and then by providing a hyperlink to the target groups to conduct the online survey. The results available through Google sheets have been transferred to Statistica 13 from StatSoft, Inc. The questionnaire used closed single choice questions as well as hierarchy questions. Data analysis methods (descriptive statistics) and quantitative techniques were used for data analysis. To verify the hypothesis that the two qualitative characteristics of the population are independent χ 2 test was used comparing the frequency of observed frequencies from those expected.

Pro-entrepreneurial education plays an increasingly important role in creating multidimensional entrepreneurship, which includes not only providing the necessary knowledge, but also shaping people who are socially entrepreneurial or creative and active in their workplaces. An important area in the implementation of these concepts is cooperation between academic circles and Business Environment Institutions (BEIs) as entities supporting the education process. The main objective of the article is to identify areas and ways of cooperation between universities and BEIs in order to improve the process of shaping students and encouraging them to take up self-employment and develop their entrepreneurial attitudes. In the years 2016-2018, research was conducted on the identification of cooperation areas and tools used by BEIs in terms of their impact on cooperation with academic centers. The purpose was to improve the process of shaping entrepreneurial attitudes among students. The study was carried out using the following research methods and techniques: computer-assisted personal interview (CAPI), individual in-depth interviews (IDI) and participant observation. The study covered BEIs in the Małopolskie province, where a system project of the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development (PARP) was implemented in the years 2012-2013 titled "Information and advisory services in the KSU network", financed under measure 2.2.1 of the Human Capital Operational Program (HC OP). The surveyed representatives of BEIs emphasized that the cooperation with universities not only allowed to reach potential recipients of system services, but above all brought tangible benefits to the teaching process. Participation in university events and classes broadened the knowledge about the practical aspects of taking up and running their a business not only among students but also the entire academic community. The academia also highly rated the cooperation with business, including the development of student education programs in specific areas as well as the hands-on involvement of practitioners in education. What's more, the cooperation between BEIs and universities initiated at the implementation of the system project continues despite the formal closing of the publicly funded project. In the context of changes the Polish university education system is undergoing, and its orientation on active cooperation with the business environment, this is of considerable importance.

Consumer preferences at the interface between client and tourism service provider are characterized by large changes occurring nowadays. Observation of these changes may help in determining future required competencies required by an employee of a tourism service provider as well as technological trends used in communication and concluding transactions between companies and consumers. Accordingly, it is useful to analyze students' experiences on searching a tourism service to understand their preferences and in a second stage to apply these experiences to build knowledge for future job engagement as a potential tourism service providers. This paper presents the first step of an ongoing investigation that focuses on the tourist services experiences and construction of knowledge on undergraduate tourism management students. We report and discuss the result of a survey conducted involving the students of Tourism management at The Jerzy Kukuczka Physical Education Academy in Katowice-Poland. Structured questionnaires based on a 12-item importance scale were administered to a convenience sample of 220 respondents. Research questions are in the range of youth preferences regarding searching for information and communication with tourism service providers. Therefore, what payment channels are selected what are the preferences associated with the use of mobile applications in dynamically changing reality and websites. The changes taking place in 2015-2019 in the above areas was also be analyzed. The research was carried out, in each case, in the spring months. For our survey, we used "Google form tool" and "Statistica 13" software suite. The χ2 test was used for data analysis. From our research, it emerged that the preferred means of searching information about a tourism service provider searching the web, for communication purposes, the email and mobile phone are the most important software/device; Booking.com resulted to be the most popular tourism platform. The analysis of personal experience and construction of knowledge of students of Tourism management at The Jerzy Kukuczka Physical Education Academy in Katowice has influences in the restructuration of the course syllabuses on "Information and Communication Technologies in tourism organizations".

Udział w kursie ICT należy traktować jako innowacyjny, ponieważ stosuje on technologie do procesu nauczania i uczenia się, nie tylko w klasie, ale także poza nią, budując z jednej strony formalne grupy uczestniczące w nauczaniu, a z drugiej wprowadza działania nieformalne polegające na tym, że inni z grupy mogą wymieniać swoje opinie w pracy wykonywanej przez grupę zadaniową. Tego rodzaju uczenie czy nauczanie promuje wydajne środowisko kształcące. Cytowanie: Ochoa Siguencia L., Sadowska E.

Participatory learning and online learning are increasingly appealing as educational approaches which can positively affect learners. Participatory learning engages students as active participants in the full educational programme, including homework and exercises, whilst online learning offers tools that facilitate learners’ collaboration and peer evaluation, minimising student and instructor overhead in the conduction of courses. This article reports on EScAlADE, a two-year EU-funded project initiated at the end of 2015, which focuses on the education of low-skilled adults through participatory online non-formal and informal learning. This article presents and discusses the first phase of the EScAlADE project. Indeed, although their project is still in progress, the authors decided to report on the survey they made at the beginning of the project as well as on a collaborative training event that took place in the intermediate project phase, since a few interesting findings have emerged from them.
