Improve Maritime Education Training Through Online Teaching

Online teaching is able to exclude the inconvenience of social life schedule, offering access to knowledge anytime, from any location. Another gain of this method is the ability of transmitting knowledge also for present students or former students interested in latest developments in maritime industry, and certainly for teachers and trainers, especially at the beginning of their lecturer careers. This paper presents the online teaching system used by the Constanta Maritime University, for teachers and students, for former students, now officers onboard ships, to acess the latest information’s about technical development in maritime field. This system can improve the communications and interconnectivity between academic institutions and civil society, first as developer of knowledge’s and scientific research, second as beneficiary and applicants of these. The international work to improve maritime education and training has identified lack of access to quality learning material and tutors in many countries. It is assumed that increased use of information and communication technologies will be one major component for future quality improvement of maritime education and training.
