Virtual mobility

Virtual mobility is a possibility for persons of higher education, teachers and students, to use institutions outside their country to study and teach for a limited time without physically leaving their home, for example Erasmus-programs. This concept works with using new information and communication technologies. (Wikipedia)

An example for virtual mobility in Europe isEDUContact – European Distance Education Contact Centre:
It is „[…] a project for global promotion and partnership for European distance higher education.“
It organises access to different courses by European universities through a European contact centre.
„EduContact aims to show the diversity of contexts, cultures and languages of distance higher education in Europe within one contact centre acting for all the present and future partners of the project.“

It does not use virtual mobility only, it also focuses on the direct human interaction provided through the use of the  contact centre of the French national centre for distance education (CNED).

„EduContact’s second key issue is the continuous survey of the motivation for European distance higher education through a multilingual on line questionnaire. The needs and interest expressed by the students all over the world will be collected and taken into account for the further development of courses on offer, and for more general European strategies regarding distance higher education.“

„EduContact is an opportunity for large and small distance learning universities to benefit from the European dimension and visibility of the project, and to be able to promote their courses. EduContact is open to new higher education partners,
for whom a particular agreement will be drawn up.#
