  • Three scenarios of use:

    HEI teaching staff: do you want to create a MOOC? We suggest you assemble your course by using existing open materials and tools, and if you find something is missing, pls create it and share it.

    HEI teaching staff: do you want to add a virtual component to your existing teaching cooperation with colleagues? Browse virtual mobility success stories to convince your managers and explore tools to make this happen.

    HEI managers: do you want to improve the quality of your educational offer by increasing international cooperation? MOOCs and VM can be put in place and raise your institution profile. Browse how other universities have implemented these innovative practices.
  • eMundus project: open education and international academic collaboration

    1. 1. The eMundus project: first results, open questions and a call for cooperation
    2. 2. Why eMUNDUS?
    3. 3. Aim of eMUNDUS The aim of eMUNDUS is to strengthen cooperation among HE from the involved regions (EU, Brazil, Mexico, Russia, Indonesia, Canada and New Zealand) and globally, by exploring the potential of Open Approaches (e.g. OER, MOOCs and VM) to support long term, balanced, inter-cultural academic partnership.

    5. 5. Project vision Open Education (including MOOCs and Virtual Mobility) is not a solution to the urging challenges of reducing the unitary cost of higher education - moving towards a “market-oriented” global higher education system, but rather a way to help establish long-term international partnership, aiming for an open international setting where universities cooperate based on their capacity not only to attract international students but to meaningfully work together and share experiences.
    6. 6. Activities
    7. 7. Mapping: the eMundus ATLAS
    8. 8. Sharing: the eMundus exploratorium Selection of the existing tools and approaches to integrate Virtual Mobility and MOOCs in the internationalisation strategy of a university. The objective will be to transform teachers into “open scholars” and HEI managers into “OE leaders”. Build throgh discovery paths in 5 steps: 1. Success stories 2. Requirements 3. Tools and resources 4. Implementation 5. Feedback to the community
    9. 9. Working beyond the partners • We cannot reach an impact working in isolation • We are working with stakeholders such as ICDE, EDEN, EFQUEL, IAU etc… • This will not be enough: we are inviting community partners to contribute – To the mapping – To the exploratorium – To the webinars – …
