The paper aims to share the results of developing new and innovative courses, delivered via an online
platform. Moreover, the endeavor consists in adapting the existing curricula to the job market requirements especially by developing new skills and competencies to undergraduates from three different fields of study: economics, social sciences and architecture.

Computer-based learning becomes more attractive to young people due to the delivery of the online course content which is provided in a innovative and attractive structure (digitized lessons), as a result of a joint venture between academia and IT experts.

The research methodology consists in analyzing the national context of computer-based education, identifying the core skills and competencies required by the employers and developing measurements to assess the effectiveness of the computer-based learning.

What gives value to our research is the direct contact with students during the entire process starting with digitized lessons usage, assessing the learning outcome and finally providing evidence of learning effectiveness.

An online survey is currently run in order to capture the learning experience as it is perceived by students that are testing our “products”. Valuable information will be available soon and a set of improvements will be in place in order to maximize the learning outcome.
