H2020: Partners sought for the delivery and testing of ´ICT e-learning -Y- Training´ in low and middle income countries
Summary:
A UK SME providing ICT courses in community learning centres is planning a project to investigate, develop and implement an adaptable e-learning support system for integrating and managing learning objects for universities in the sub-Saharan region with the open source learning platform Moodle. Partners are sought for ICT-39-2016-2017 to apply the system in universities, provide training, manage and analyse feedback and test software modules designed to adapt and reconfigure the Moodle system.
Description:
A North West UK based SME providing personalised and flexible ICT courses for learners in community learning centres in collaboration with colleges and universities is looking to submit a proposal for the ICT-39-2016-2017 topic ´International partnership building in low and middle income countries´. The project focusses on innovative enhanced learning components for e-learning support with as an example learning content management system for universities in the sub-Saharan region. It investigates, develops and implements component-based software modules that would enhance learning and teaching for universities in the region.

The adaptable e-learning support system is designed and developed with a view to achieving the benefits of high-quality teaching and high-quality learning and training outcomes. It is a reliable, reusable, evolvable and maintainable learning support software system. The project will involve integrating and managing learning objects in the Moodle online content management system for enhanced learning and evaluation of learners; as well as testing innovative software tools to support the integration and incorporation of learning objects in the Moodle environment among other aspects.

The system addresses:
- The issue of ´learner congestion´ in one location by enabling the delivery of courses simultaneously in different locations to more students and;
- The challenges of ´efficient evaluation of students on courses with high enrolments´ by enabling teachers to post and evaluate courses assignments and exams online, thus efficiently reaching students in different locations on a university campus.

Current participants in project:
- The UK based SME active in adaptable e-learning; specialist in bid writing and project adviser and linked to the College of Technology at University of Buea, Cameroon;
- The computer science department of a major North West UK based university; experts in course content development, accreditation, design as well as development of identified software modules and content to adapt existing Moodle learning content management environment;

The SME has a team of specialised staff in e-learning support systems and provides personalised tools and an innovative learning approach for organisations and individuals. It delivers learning support where and when needed. With its adaptable e-learning system, the company provides flexibility to learners, especially at community learning centres, colleges and remote regions. Currently, learners can develop specialised knowledge on various ICT subjects and achieve certification and accreditation for a wide range of courses. For this reason, the proposed system will accommodate ICT courses initially. However, it is flexible and adaptable to accommodate courses in others domains in the future.

To complement the consortium the UK SME is looking for the following:
- Partners to test the system (particularly, in other universities in the sub-Saharan region);
- Partners to test software modules and components designed for the adaptation and reconfiguration of the Moodle environment;
- Partners to provide human resources training on relevant content management system (e. g. Moodle);
- Trainers of teachers, lecturers and facilitators on the use and management of courses with the proposed system;
- Partners to manage and analyse feedback for the test-run and implementation of the proposed system (with a few of future developments);

Duration of this project is 18 months; the anticipated budget between EUR 1 and 2 million depending on the final consortium.

EOI Deadline: 17th March 2017
Call Deadline: 25th April 2017
Advantages and Innovations:
The system will enable teachers in the target regions to teach and evaluate students and learners more effectively using ´customisable tools´ of the automated online assessments and evaluation system; reduce the work-load of ´manual evaluation´ of students (which typically are in their hundreds per course). It will provide more relevant resources for students and learners in the regions as well as easier access to learning and professional development. Further, the system allows for teaching, evaluating and assessing students in multiple locations simultaneously.

Partner sought

Partner Sought:
