Abstract:
The educational process changed significantly in the context of the pandemic generated by the Coronavirus. University students had to move from the traditional classes and laboratories to the online platform. As extant research shows, this shift to online education has both advantages and drawbacks. The objective of this research is to analyze the advantages of online lectures as perceived by engineering students from a Romanian technical university in Bucharest. The analysis has been done on a sample of 109 university students. The results revealed two kinds of benefits: educational and personal. The most important educational benefits were the online participation and the possibility to record and review courses or seminars any time and from anywhere. The most important personal benefits were time-saving, comfort, and money-saving. Overall, the perceptions of engineering students are suggesting a relative acceptance of the online lecture format which contrasts with the results of similar studies in the literature

Abstract:
The online platforms have been in a continuous development since the beginning of their appearance, being classified according to the field of activity. This article discusses some features of the online educational platforms, that serve the distance learning adopted during this pandemic period by the majority of nations on the planet, to continue the educational progress, at all levels of learning. The article is intended exclusively for the platforms used at the pre-university level of education and illustrates theoretical notions about them, represented by typologies, characteristics, and the features that platforms have been applying. The online platforms, as any other software device, possess advantages and also limitations of the available functions, and this article illustrates their approach in the context of the formative type of assessments, as well as of the summative ones. The effects of using these platforms are highlighted by using the questionnaire survey. This has the final aim to identify the perceptions of the respondents on the use of the online educational platforms for conveying the school information and also to identify the psycho-social aspects that this approach entails. At the end of the article the results of students' attendance at the online courses are presented, results that were collected based on the monitoring study conducted on a sample of students.

Abstract:
Mobile applications are a significant part of our lives, especially the applications that help solve particular problems at certain stages of our lives or those that are the very object of our work. In the field of education, mobile applications have been integrated in the teaching of lessons or in the transmission of information. Various applications on the market have been largely adopted for the information transmission from the educational environment. TikTok is one of these applications, and in this article we aim to analyze the advantages and disadvantages of using this application in the educational environment. At the same time, the effects of the heavy use of this application by adolescents are analyzed and also inadequate situations to be avoided in the use of the application are highlighted. Statistical data are presented through a questionnaire-based study. At the end of the article opinions on the purpose of the application and its use in education, as an educational tool are presented

Abstract:
Over the last two decades, we seem to have been confronted with a tremendous number of books, films, TV shows, or series that deal with the past and the present, not to mention the future, as if it were all out of time, timeless, even when it is history. We have to consider our present world as the continuation and the result of the long evolution our species has gone through since we emerged from our ancestors 300,000 years ago. Julien d’Huy is a mythologist who tries to capture the phylogeny of myths, and popular or folkloric stories that have deep roots in our past and have been produced, changed and refined over many millennia. Can he answer the question about how we have become what we are by studying the products of our past and present imagination? But confronted to the prediction of Y.N. Harari that our species will simply disappear as soon as the intelligent machines we are inventing and producing take over our bodies, brains, and minds in just a few decades, Julien d’Huy sure sounds like the antidote because at every turn in our long history we have been able, collectively, to seize the day, and evolve into a new stage in our life, both biological and mental, not to mention spirituality. Let’s enter Julien d’Huy’s book and find out the power and the energy that will enable us to short-circuit and avoid Yuval’s nightmare.

Abstract:
Police Education and Training is central to the successful realization of the constitutional democracy and protection of human rights. An attempt is made in this paper to evolve a curriculum framework for a people-sensitive Police Training and Education. One of the important objectives of this framework is to search for quality, standards, guidelines, and a general conceptual platform for improving basic Police Education and Training. This paper also aims at identifying general curricular parameters related to the development of a culture of policing, making policing practices more democratic and public-oriented to ensure greater security and more effective crime prevention. This paper argues that it is illogical, detrimental, and undesirable to separate police training from police education. Since policing is a highly respected professional field like medicine, it is imperative to integrate knowledge about society, dynamics of social and geopolitical spaces and human development from the complex socio-political perspective with police ethics and social and civic responsibilities and so on. In conclusion, this paper shows how people-sensitive and philosophically sound curricular policy for police education would serve people, communities, and societies. The ideas and insights in this paper are derived from the best practices available in the country and across the globe.
