Integrating Open Technologies in the Virtual Mobility Learning Hub
Authors – Andrei Ternauciuc, Vlad Mihăescu, Radu Vasiu, Diana Andone

This paper presents the development of the Open Virtual Mobility Learning Hub, as an integration of several interactive technologies in an open source learning environment based on Moodle. The Open Virtual Mobility Learning Hub is a collaborative online and mobile environment for promoting and assessing VM Skills of educators and students in the European Higher Education Area. The OpenVM Learning Hub includes several interactive tools in components, services and technologies. This paper analyses different open-source software and tools, essential for the OpenVM Learning hub, as its development is based on open education principles.
