Widen and improve university teaching for students, create new educational pathways for refugees and build entrepreneurial and language skills.
Specifically, the consortium aims to:
-Identify opportunities and barriers in recognizing Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)-based learning for students and refugees
-Create institutional and cross-institutional scenarios to exploit MOOCs for credit-bearing HEI courses & future employability amongst students and refugees
-Implement a set of scenarios in partner HEIs and amongst our partnership reaching 175 learners, refugees and registered students
-Create a cost-benefit analysis tool, allowing Higher Education Institutions to calculate the impact of MOOC-provision on their triple bottom lines (financial, environmental, social)
-Run an open online course targeted at MOOC providers and refugee support groups on how to design and utilize MOOCs for refugees while make learning resources available beyond course duration
-Create a vision and recommendations, aimed at European policy makers and institutional leaders, for a more viable and strategic role of MOOCs in European HEIs.
