Abstract: The Hands-On ICT project aims at facilitating the integration of ICT tools in teaching through an open and learning-by-doing environment where teachers will develop their skills with innovative educational tools. In the project we are planning to prepare a set of MOOCs (massive open online courses) to achieve aforementioned aim. In 1st round pilot, where we prepared three creative learning activities, we were evaluating certain characteristics of the courses, importance of communication, successfulness of the course, and researched participants’ opinion with open questions. We discovered that although communication and mentoring were not the most important course characteristics, they are important for course successfulness. With brief qualitative research of open questions, we found out, that participants liked the fact of being involved in such international project, but wished for more support at pilot. For the next level of piloting we have to improve tutoring role, work on comprehensiveness and usefulness of future course materials and improve towards successfulness of the courses.
