Marketing Text By an effective e-learning system, this project can provide lifelong learning. The main reason of this is, this kind of training has time independence.

The product of this project titled ISLETMEOKULU can encourage this kind of projects and supports this objective.
Bank financing will become more difficult for SMEs in the future because of Basel II. SMEs usually have very small accounting departments and often they have no accounting department at all. The entrepreneurs themselves may lack financial administrative skills to manage financial risks and they are involved in day-to-day business matters that the documents required by the bank are often neglected. So shortly we can say that the project aims to develop an e-learning portal to give vocational education to SMEs in order to teach those Basel II standards, preparation of clear financial tables that are well-matched with International Accounting Standards (IAS), hedging their operational risks by using financial instruments and strengthen their capital structures. In order to actualize the aims expected from the project, a portal and a distance learning system will be developed and two different modules will be prepared – “International Accounting Standards for SMEs in the Congruity Frame to Basel II” and “Financial Management for SMEs in the Congruity Frame to Basel II”. Each module will be suitable for e-learning and include training materials, assessment tests, case studies and a glossary. Modules will be written in Turkish and then translated into English.
