Mobilité des apprentis : les CFA peuvent candidater jusqu`au 15 avril pour participer au "projet pilote"

Numero_VertL’appel à propositions pour le "projet pilote" sur la mobilité internationale des apprentis a été publié par la Commission européenne.

Cet appel à propositions à destination des CFA et autres centres d’apprentissage en Europe a été publié par la Commission européenne fin février 2016.
Selon ce document, le budget total est estimé à 1,8 million d’euros. Le montant potentiel, pour chaque subvention, est compris entre 100 000 et 200 000 euros.

Rethinking dropout in online higher education: The case of the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningIn recent years, several studies have been carried out into the reasons why students drop out of online higher education, following the rise in the relative weight of this form of education. However, more effort has gone into analyzing the causes of this phenomenon than into trying to characterize students who drop out, that is defining what a dropout student is.

Introducing a learning management system at a Russian university: Students' and teachers' perceptions

Student satisfaction with a web-based dissertation course: Findings from an international distance learning master's programme

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningOnline distance learning (e-learning) is now an established method for providing higher education, in the UK and across the world.

Thus the effectiveness of this teaching approach, and its acceptability to students, is, at times, uncertain. More...
