What is the SBCLT and what can it do for you?

Primary objective

Primary focus of the SBCLT

Improve quality

The SBCLT will primarily focus on e-learning: the development of knowledge, skills and competences of the Schengen Borders Code. An optimal User Experience (UX) is required for minimal distraction to keep the end-user concentrated on the learning environment.


The secondary focus is realism, meaning that the SBCLT should focus on mimicking a real life experience of a border control situation in both visual elements and functional processes.

Principals concerning design

Design principals

The UI will be designed according to the following key specifications:

  • Support resolution 1024 x 768 and greater;
  • Professional;
  • Responsive (mobile first);
  • Frontex' design standards (CVI);
  • Minimal/flat design;
  • Minimal resizing, panning and scrolling;
  • Easy reading.

Flat Design

Flat design refers to a style of interface design which removes any stylistic choices that give the illusion of three-dimensions (such as drop shadows, gradients, or textures) and is focused on a minimalist use of simple elements, typography and flat colors. It allows interface designs to be more streamlined and efficient.

Responsive Design

Responsive web design (RWD) is a web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors).
