The presentation of Mr. Zhelev continued with the templates which are used for the digitalization, as well as the ways to do it. The templates demonstrated how easy can be for all people with different level of digital skills to start their own digitalization process, just by following the given steps.

The Guide is a natural continuation of the creation of digital content, which shows how to disseminate it to the public in a way that will help the creators to reach a wide audience.
The audience was familiarized with the digitalized recipes by students of the training course – people from Bulgaria, Latvia, Italy and Portugal.
