It is important that this year, thanks to the teams’ development and publication of the Multimedia Textbook “EU Governance and European Integration Policy”, there has been an improvement and increase in the effectiveness of teaching courses within the Jean Monnet Module. Students learned better by using the Multimedia textbook, which contains many visual interactive materials (videos, photos, tables, pictures, etc.). Studying the course with the help of the Multimedia Textbook will facilitate easier transition of students to distance learning because of the pandemic and will help not to worsen the quality of education.
