  11. Nikola, professor: I think the lack of financial resources in academic and in individual frames is one of the key factors for the modest application of ICTs. Also important is the indifference of teachers, from primary school to university. The Internet should be accessible to everyone and in every place at the universities, and that is not always the case, for now. Flickr: aabrilru
  12. Marko, junior faculty: The conditions are not the same in developed and underdeveloped cities. Schools are unequally equipped; teachers are unevenly trained and motivated. A lot depends on the Director/Dean of the institution. Vesna, professor: Unfortunately, in an environment where I work, there are personal and unscientific reasons. In my faculty, the Dean has created unhuman relationships, everything is subordinated to the whims of the Dean’s Office, and the Ministry of Education does not care. Collaboration takes place in personal relationships. Flickr: ChromaticOrb
  13. Natasa, postgraduate student: Professors are very inflexible on many issues. We study from the same books for ages and in my field of study things are changing every day. There are fewer practical examples than there should be. I think the key point is to convince the professors to do their job, and their work is to promote and disseminate knowledge. The professor has to be a leader in that sense, the first one to have an account, to create a group that supports the dissemination of information and knowledge, and not to hide them from their students.

  14. Danijel, student: Education for professors to use social media is needed as the initiative must come from them. Moreover, some of the tools should be accepted at the institutional level and all professors should be obliged to use them. Flickr: ChromaticOrb
  15. uncertainty I do not know how our students would accept new technologies doubt I’m not sure if they would be interested in this kind of collaboration concern There is low awareness about the possibilities of implementing social media sites for collaboration and “maybe even fear of the new” Flickr: ChromaticOrb
  16. Educators: new and improved policies for ICT use in education. Students: an open and frequent communication as well as interaction between teachers and students. Flickr: Fluxerik
