During the Slovak piloting run, the participants were continuously reporting minor technical issues. Some of them were easy and quick to fix, such as adding instructions on how to turn on the subtitles in the videos. Overall, participants did not report any issues with the content. This is a huge success for us and we can mainly focus on improving technical side of the course in order to make it as user friendly as possible.
