Thanks to the use of the wireframe, the teacher no longer needs to write lesson topics by hand, it is enough just to select them from the list. For each lesson, topic-related educational materials are automatically offered that can be studied in the classroom or asked at home, after which they will automatically be added to students' electronic diaries.
