Digital Higher Education

Digital Higher Education

The digital revolution holds considerable promise for both students and universities. The Foundation serves as a platform for exploring how new ICT tools and solutions can help strengthen cooperation, enhance the functioning of higher education institutions and improve learning.

The five lines of activity currently being pursued under the digital HE pillar are:

  • Streamlined administration
  • The EU project learning-agreement.eu aims to considerably simplify the bureaucratic management of student mobility
  • The EU project Erasmus without paper is looking to set standards that allow the universities’ IT systems to exchange information automatically
  • Student resources: Speak Up is an online platform that promotes language learning, providing free access to courses in seven languages. The Foundation is also developing an online platform focused on entrepreneurship (expected to be online in 2016)
  • Curricular comparison/development: the Foundation has an extensive experience in this domain (see matrices) and proprietary tools that allow members to compare curricula so new joint programmes can be developed with ease.
