|EU: Lifelong Learning, Activity 3 (ICT)
|12/2011 – 11/2014
|University of Manchester
The aim of the project was to promote the usage of online 2D and 3D scenarios in learning and teaching contexts in universities through interinstitutional collaboration.
The network consists of 18 partners from 10 European countries (UK, France, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Austria, Portugal, Cyprus and Germany) and Israel. Some of the partners already had experience with using virtual 2D or 3D worlds (e.g. in the European projects AVALON, AVATAR, START, LANCELOT and NIFLAR); while others had little or no experience and wanted to build on the experience present in the network.
The timeframe of the collaboration was defined to make it possible for the target group/ users of the end products to have learned about the project, been trained and supported in the implementation. The aim was to create a community-to-practice that would be able work self-sufficiently.
The focus of learning and transferring the knowledge was on developing guidelines and good practices based on the experiences.
Verein Offenes Lernen contributed mostly with its experience in developing and implementing learning scenarios in virtual worlds.
