The Erasmus Dashboard and the OLA platform supports also the new Erasmus+ Programme opportunities:
- Blended mobility with short-term physical mobility
- Short term doctoral mobility
When accessing the Online Learning Agreement platform, the student can choose the right template to fill in to manage their Online Learning Agreement documentation in each of the mobility opportunities. Then they can simply follow the steps to finalise the document and invite the Sending and Receiving Higher Education Institutions to review it following similar logic as for the semester mobilities.
Blended mobility with short-term physical mobility
As of the new Erasmus+ Programme, in order to foster accessibility to the exchange opportunities offered by the Programme itself, students can take part in a short-term physical mobility, combined with a mandatory virtual component.
In this case, the student and the HEIs involved will be able to use the new Online Learning Agreement template to describe the study programme and recognition of the learning outcomes. The learning programme is illustrated in a single table that also includes the recognition information the sending institution that will either confirm automatic recognition or justify the reason for awarding an alternative recognition.
In addition, a short description of the nature of the virtual component will be required, to clarify the type of learning experience undertaken (e.g. online learning exchange and teamwork, online learning as part of a course offered in a blended learning format, academic assignment with a supervisor in the receiving institution).
Short-term doctoral mobility
The platforms also support the process of finalising the short-term doctoral mobility Online Learning Agreement as per official template.
The single table included allows to describe the study programme and recognition of the learning outcomes. It can include a title or a description of the component, which may be - for example - a seminar, a workshop or a stay abroad in preparation for a thesis or research paper. Doctoral candidates are also able to add virtual components such as courses, webinars or online teamwork.
To enhance the synergies with Horizon Europe, doctoral mobilities can also take place in the context of Horizon Europe funded research projects.
Access for the Higher Education Institutions
The management of Short-term mobilities is accessible via the corresponding menu option in the Erasmus Dashboard. Same options as for the semester mobility management are made available for sorting/searching/filtering students lists as well as signing the Online Learning Agreement or sharing more comments for the student to further advance the document.
