The Erasmus+ EU funded Virtual Mobilities for All project has launched an online self-assessment tool and online Open Education Resources in the form of a short online course. The project addresses the need of creating accessible opportunities for the achievement of Virtual Mobility Skills in education. Virtual Mobilities for All aims at researching and promoting Virtual Mobilities, for young people with organisations both within and outside their own countries to experience and interchange with others for cultural exchanges, learning or work experience for a limited time, without physically leaving their home.
The self-assessment tool for skills provides the opportunity young people with or without disabilities and for teachers and trainers supporting young people for know their own strengths and areas for improvement by responding to statements about activities related to virtual mobility skills. It contains five sections:
- Communication skills
- Language skills
- Life and Social Skills
- Digital Skills
- Social Support
The self-assessment tool is available in five languages – Spanish, French, German, Greek and Macedonian.
The Virtual Mobilities for All Course has five short modules:
- Types of Virtual Mobility
- What types of support are important?
- How do I access a Virtual Mobility opportunity?
- What types of skills are important?
There is no requirement to compete each of the modules – users are free to dip in and out to follow the materials they are interested in. While the self-assessment tool requires learners to create an account to provide them with a confidential report on their skills, the course is completely open.
