- offer students the theoretical understanding and practical skills concerning the remote therapy process, also support learning in practice,
- develop innovative solutions for remote therapy and rehabilitation education internationally,
- support future cooperation aims between the partners in multidisciplinary rehabilitation.

The therapy process, forming the core contents of the e-learning course, includes:
1) evaluating and assessing the customer/patient remotely,
2) planning the therapy objectives together with the customer remotely,
3) planning and implementing the therapy sessions remotely,
4) evaluating the results remotely.
