UBICAMP- INTEGRATED SOLUTION TO VIRTUAL MOBILITY BARRIERS
The funding source: Erasmus Multilateral Projects
Project ID: 526843-LLP-1-2012-1-ES-ERASMUS-ESMO
UbiCamp Project attempts to respond to the need to overcome the usual barriers for virtual mobility (VM) within HEIs in the EU.
UbiCamp is the acronym of “Ubiquitous Campus”, which is a model of Virtual Mobility that allows the integration of new institutions through a decentralised model. Each institution would only have to respect the established minimum quality requirements and the technological integration would become an easy process.
The main aim of the UBIcamp project is to make virtual mobility a mainstream opportunity for all parties involved (teachers, students and institutions). UBIcamp proposes a comprehensive solution that addresses all the barriers and difficulties of virtual mobility nowadays.
The specific objectives of UBIcamp project are:
a) Organizational elements (recognition of the teaching/learning experience, institutional agreements, virtual mobility session organization requirements, etc);
b) Technological elements (minimum technological standards of learning resources in order to make them re-usable, accessible, etc.);
c) Pedagogic/ didactical elements (requirements for didactical preparation of study curriculum for virtual mobility and assessment methodologies for virtual mobility);
d) Cultural elements (learning resources to enhance intercultural exchanges during virtual mobility processes).
