Exploiting MOOCs for access and progression HEIs and Employment

This output starts with the exploration of existing initiatives, involving students and refugees, that ease their access to HEIs and to the labour market through online learning. Building upon the exploration of refugees and students’ skill needs and on existing online offers, the partner HEIs develop their own path that supports their own students, external students and refugees to access their institutions and the labour market. Furthermore, they will agree on a common cross-institutional path through which students will benefit from the combination of HEIs’ advantages. The practice report (including institutional context, type of learners, MOOCs, recognition system, necessary administrative arrangements, collaboration with MOOC providers or refugee stakeholders) presents the diversity of paths that lead to an increased recognition of online acquired skills, and thus, to social inclusion and employability.
