Project partner:

  • European Federation for Quality in e-Learning (EFQEL) (Belgium)

To achieve these aims we will:

  • Build on the results of the OERTest initiative by piloting, within a living lab, the use of a student-held learning passport to facilitate recognition & mobility
  • Plan, test and create a recognition-clearinghouse to support the verification and investigation of learning passports
  • Create a typology of quality systems used in VM and OER systems, to support the learning passports and recognition-clearinghouse
  • Engage in dialogue with multiple institutions around Europe so as to mainstream the use of the recognition tools created by the project
