The Online Learning Agreement Survey Report: 2017-2019 is now available in the resources section. The research was carried out in the context of the Online Learning Agreement+ (OLA+) project with the goal of assessing the OLA platform and Erasmus Without Paper Dashboard. The report is based on two surveys carried out at the end of 2019 and beginning of 2020 among 2,690 students and 1,171 coordinators.
The highlight of the report is the students’ satisfaction rate with the OLA platform: more than 90% of students would recommend the OLA to their peers. Furthermore, 93% of IROs think that all Learning Agreements should be done online through an easy-to-use tool. Even if more than ¾ of International Relations Office staff would recommend the usage of the Dashboard, there is still room for improvement and the report analyses the aspects of improvement that will further inform the development work.
The report offers insights into the students’ perception of certain characteristics of the OLA, namely what they appreciate the most and what could be further improved. From the coordinator’s survey, we collected information about adoption rates, perceived workload of Erasmus+ exchanges, share of successfully finalised OLAs and estimated time saved by using the OLA. Coordinators also pointed out advantages of the OLA and suggested other adjustments. In addition to general indicators, country breakdown values were computed.
Lastly, the report also includes policy recommendations for the new Erasmus programme (2021-2027). Read the report!
