Free Webinar: Capturing Learning, Monday 6th March 13.30-14.30 (CET)

Free Webinar:  Capturing Learning.   Monday 6th March 13.30-14.30 (CET)

EUNIS member Manchester Metropolitan University (winner of the 2014 EUNIS Elite Award) invites you to join one of their teaching and learning conversations.

Following our last webinar on e-assessment EUNIS members expressed an interest in looking at the more pedagogic aspects of assessment so here is the opportunity. In this webinar we will look at the role of assessment in higher education. In focusing on curriculum and qualifications do we really capture all of the knowledge and skills that students develop? Technology has a role to play but so does how we think about learning outcomes.

The free webinar will be held on Monday 6th of March at 13.30 -14.30 CET. To participate in the webinar simply go to the registration page and follow the instructions. You do not need to register in advance but please allow sufficient time to connect and check your setup.

The HOLA Cloud Roadmap – identify the major challenges

The HOLA Cloud Roadmap – identify the major challenges

The HOLA Cloud roadmap compiles the opinion of ICT experts to assess how CLOUD Computing will develop over the next years.

Basing on the experts’ opinions the roadmap tries to identify which long-term developments are needed on basis of the overall research and development trends both in industry and academy, as well as market trends that indicate how the requirements and market needs will develop.

The Roadmap has now been published as a living document on HOLA Cloud website, where the key topics and the individual aspects are presented in full detail and opened to discussion. In regular intervals, the comments will be analysed and the roadmap updated accordingly. On behalf of euroCRIS (the partner of the project) we encourage  to contribute to the HOLA Cloud Roadmap.

Contribute to the HOLA Cloud Roadmap

Hola Cloud received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The project targets to establish effective mechanisms for efficient collaboration among the members of the Software, Services and Cloud Computing community.
