Learning Layers - Scaling up Technologies for Informal Learning

Scaling up Technologies for Informal Learning in SME Clusters - Project develops a set of modular and flexible technological layers for supporting workplace practices in SMEs that unlock peer production and scaffold learning in networks of SMEs, thereby bridging the gap between scaling and adaptation to personal needs. By building on recent advances in contextualised learning, these layers provide a meaningful learning context when people interact with people, digital and physical artefacts for their informal learning, thus making learning faster and more effective.

EMMA - European Multiple MOOC Aggregator

European Multiple MOOC Aggregator - Project aims to showcase excellence in innovative teaching methodologies and learning approaches through the large-scale piloting of MOOCs, providing a system for the delivery of free, open, online courses from diverse European universities with the goal of preserving Europe’s rich cultural, educational and linguistic heritage and promoting cross-cultural and multi-lingual learning. Building on existing and proven technology, EMMA will provide an opportunity, even for smaller institutions, to share high-quality content. EMMA will operate in two main modes; as an aggregator and hosting system of courses produced by European universities; and as a system that enables learners to construct their own courses using units from MOOCs as building blocks. The pilot will operate in 2 steps, first by making available a significant number of existing courses from project partners and/or MOOCs providers and then by bringing on board a second tier of universities keen to experiment with MOOCs. Pilots will run in 7 countries with a total of 16 MOOCs and will involve at least 60.000 users. Advances in learning analytics will feature in the analysis and evaluation work and a series of innovative approaches will be trialed to make the piloted service sustainable in the medium to long term.

Interdisciplinary Curricula in Computing to Meet Labor Market Needs - It is a Joint Project / Curricular Reform (JPCR) project with the objective to initiate capacity building for interdisciplinary studies at universities in Serbia, to be offered both in English and in Serbian, at all three levels of study (BSc, MSc, PhD), and in at least one of the following three modes of study: face-to-face mode, distance learning, and blended mode. To do that, the project will develop, accredit, implement and evaluate several interdisciplinary study programmes, at four different universities in Serbia (see the page 'About the project' for details). By developing and implementing these programmes, the project intends to enhance employment opportunities for graduates of the new programmes, targeting specifically Serbian labor market needs in interdisciplinary computing.
