O2-A1: Virtual Mobility Learning Hub Concept – LH Concept, LH Functionalities, LH Technical features, LH User cases
This document proposes the design of the Virtual Mobility Learning Hub from the technical point of view. This Output is dedicated to designing, implementing and usability testing of an integrated Virtual Mobility Learning Hub for developing VM Skills using Online, Open & Flexible Higher Education Approaches and Practices.
The Open VM Learning Hub Concept incorporates several components, services and technologies.
The design of the VMLH starts with the desired functionalities previously discussed in partner meetings and conferences, as well as with the existing IT and e-learning infrastructures of the partners, and their desired connections with the Hub.
Several solutions were investigated, most of them in the area of open-source Personal Learning Environments (PLE). Based on the adopted concept, we propose to use the open-source learning management system Moodle as the basis for the VM Learning component, as well as, to some degree, for most of the other components.
The Open VM LH Structure comprises: VM Skills, VM e-Assessment, VM Open Credentials, VM Content, VM Activities, VM Market / Connections and VM Data.Download the full document (18 pages, PDF, 1,701kB) openVM-O2A1_VMLH_Concept_Description_FINAL_QG1

02-A2.6 Learning Hub in all partner languages
This report plans to present the development, integration and use of the Open Virtual Mobility Learning Hub in all partners languages. This implementation was required to create an easy to use online learning environment for all participants, different stakeholders from partner universities, higher education institutions from partner countries.
The Open Virtual Mobility Learning Hub is working in all the languages of the partners: English, Romanian, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch (EN, RO, FR, ES, IT, DE, NL). The Open Virtual Mobility website and OER repository was also translated in all these languages and made available from the first months of the project.
The translation and implementation was performed in a combination of automated and preexisting tools and hands-on manual translation done by all partners.Download the full document (18 pages, PDF) O2-A2.6-VM-Learning-Hub-in-all-partner-languages
02-A3.1 VMLH Usability Report (Online and Mobile)
The aim of this draft is to provide details regarding the usability report of the Virtual Mobility Learning Hub – VMLH. This report is based on a common work between all partners of OpenVM project. The usability evaluation was performed in several stages – April-May 2019, September- November 2019, by integrating several usability evaluation methods. The results are used to constantly improve the user experience in the Virtual Mobility Learning Hub – VMLH. Further usability tests will be performed in the first part of 2020.Download the full document (14 pages, PDF) openVM-DRAFT_O2A3_1_VMLH-usability-report-online-and-mobile_final
