The main objective of the Erasmus+ JPROV project – Joint Programmes: Embedding Virtual Exchange – is to create a framework for the development of innovative and efficient Joint Programmes (JP) with embedded online elements, and addressing all the new elements and circumstances that will lead to the new scenario generated by the creation of the European Education Area.

The project was completed in February 2023, and lasted for a two year period since the 1st of March 2021. The main ambition was to embed online elements in international joint programs, in a coherent and structured way leading to clear guidelines and models, addressing explicitly the horizontal priority of creating innovative practices in the digital era.

The international joint programs generated during and beyond the project lifetime, aim primarily to facilitate access to international joint programs to categories of students that have been so far excluded from these opportunities for different reasons: economic, social, geographical, physical. To this end, it created the structure and technical solutions necessary to develop these new programs, but also addressed the pedagogical content and approaches leading to the creation of new innovative curricula, educational methods and training courses for administrative, technical and academic staff.

All of this resources have been gathered in the Unite!’s Online Teaching Digital ToolboxThis online repository is an online teaching tool that contains the elements involved in creating joint online courses, including a technology toolbox, good online teaching practices, and a compilation of activities suitable for an online environment. In sum, the Online Teaching Digital Toolbox is the result of the experiences of different teachers across the different Unite! countries and disciplines. They have shared what they (and their students!) have loved in the past with the Unite! community.

What kind of content can be found on this tool?

  • Support for the development of new joint programmes

    This first category is useful for those who want to develop a study program and manage jointly between two or more HEIs from two or more different countries. A list of digital infrastructures is available to help organizers to develop the implementation of Joint Programs. To better understand their structure, some models are also available.

  • Build your digital course

    The second category is a menu of digital tools to choose from, and a set of recommendations, or Golden rules, to consider. Digital courses are composed of the pedagogical practices plus the technological tools used to carry them out in the online format. The digital tools are chosen based both on the intended learning outcomes and experiences, as well as the availability of these tools.

  • Pre-loved practices in online teaching

    A collectively gathered resource kit you can use to design your online courses. You’ll find inspiration for creating your next online course and activities that you can easily incorporate into the online classroom.
