Below you can acquire the information on the work in progress and the functionalities to be introduced shortly. The features covered here stem from the ongoing feedback received from the helpdesk tickets and as well as overall usability and security updates introduced.
More information on the long-term development plans can be found here (https://uni-foundation.eu/erasmus-going-digital-looking-back-at-2020/)
The digital Learning Agreements can be exchanged with all other EWP Network partners. Please see more information and guidelines on these novelties here.
Module for interacting with Erasmus+ App by sharing events, deals and services as well as customising Mobility Journey steps. See more information about the functionality here.
The Learning Agreements can be managed in line with the new template for:
See more introduction to these updates here. Please see more information and guidelines on these novelties here: New LA template.
When opening the Erasmus Dashboard the default view will include the students from the given semester. Correspondingly, the search and filtering results will be displayed in the scope of the given semester, while all the other cohorts of students are just a click away by applying the specific academic year via the filter.
A link to a specific OLA can be shared among the colleagues who will be able to interact with the specific document directly upon login (no need for search/filter of the OLAs) as well as when receiving email notifications inviting to review the OLAs.
To avoid duplicate registrations for the main institutional account holder, a pop-up will inform the user if the given Higher Education Institution already has a main institutional account holder and to gain access staff member should get in touch with their IRO.
New staff accounts need to be initiated by the colleagues who have the permissions to grant access to the system within the given Institution. See more information on the page on the registration to the Erasmus+ Dashboard and on the page explaining the staff account creation procedure.
Sending HEIs can delete their OLAs at any stage that will trigger a notification to the student and Receiving HEI, if they have already signed it. Receiving HEI cannot delete the OLAs where the HEI is indicated as the host HEI.
More features to ensure more transparency in the upload progress as well as adjustments needed in the import file.
In the Online Learning Agreement
On the OLA platform, students can find a log with all the previously signed versions of their document by clicking on the "History" option.
All login options are now available directly on the MyAcademicID proxy - eduGAIN, google login as well as eIDAS. So the google login button has been removed merging the access pathways to just one "login" that will service all three scenarios.
Students who previously used the google login for authentication will be able to access their accounts by clicking on "Login" in the OLA platform and after being re-directed to the MyAcademcID login page will be able to choose to log in with their google account as before, after finalising a simple registration procedure on the MyAcademicID proxy. This step is needed to ensure a smooth OLA exchange via the EWP Network.
Inter-institutional Agreement Manager now allows for using a variety of options of search, filtering and sorting of the IIAs in the list that can also be combined.
IIAs can now also be imported in bulk via a csv file created in a spreadsheet software (e.g. LibreOffice Calc, Microsoft Excel), allowing for the creation of multiple IIAs at the same time.
Draft IIAs can be deleted - if not signed by both parties.
As per surveys feedback, comment boxes have been added to the official template to allow further elaborations on the ISCED code/subject field as well as the IIA at large. See the updated template here.
