ABSTRACT
Project "University School of initial and continuous training of teachers and trainers in the field of engineering and technical specialties - DidaTec" POSDRU/87/1.3/S/60891 was designed as a national strategic partnership, involving ten technical universities from Romania, coordinated by the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca. The project aims to achieve the necessary framework to adapt teaching of engineering and technical education, in an environment marked by the digital revolution, by implementing modern educational tools and ICT technologies in teaching and learning activities performed in technical universities from Romania. The paper analyses the consequences of the Project on engineering curricula. Also the impact of learning ICT technology on both teachers and students from Technical University "Gh. Asachi" of Iasi are analyzed. Teachers benefit from using virtual environment, provided by Project DIDATEC platform. Simultaneously, teachers use Moodle experimental platform of the Technical University. Thus, teachers obtained theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to set up their Blended-Learning courses, by integrating interactive teaching and learning techniques and computer-mediated communication.
