2014 kicks off with new EU projects with EDEN involvement
LeHo: Learning at Home and in the hospital
Coordinator: Fondazione Politecnico di Milano, IT
The LeHo project outlines key educational factors and good practices needed by pupils and students who are ill. It explores and designs ICT-based solutions that will enable children in hospital, receiving home therapy, or who attend school part-time due to illness, to access education. The partnership will also aim to verify how technology can impact on the methodology and pedagogy in Home and Hospital Education (HHE).

LACE: Learning Analytics Community Exchange
Coordinator: Open University of the Netherlands, NL
The project will focus on the enablers of development and adoption of analytics that has desirable, effective and sustainable effect on learning. The partnership will collaborate with existing initiatives such as the International Educational Data Mining Society, the Society for Learning Analytics Research and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative to deliver a range of community-centred activities, capturing and disseminating the narrative of this quickly-developing field. This project produces detailed studies to boost four enablers:
- integration of a range of people to strengthen the creation and sharing of knowledge among research, practice and policy;
- gathering and documenting evidence for and against claims of effectiveness and issues of a practical or cultural nature;
- elicitation and capture of desired futures and the degree of consensus on what is desirable or feasible;
- common data models and interoperability as a basis for research data sharing and a viable market place.

TALOE: Time to Assess Learning Outcomes in Elearning
Coordinator: University of Porto, PT
TALOE will develop a web-based platform to help teachers and trainers decide on the e-assessment strategies to use in their online courses. The main idea is that a teacher will describe the learning outcomes of their course or module and the TALOE platform will analyse them and provide an e-assessment strategy that is consistent with the intended learning. To be able to develop this tool, the consortium will achieve the following:
- research and select innovative e-assessment practices that take advantage of the use of technology;
- develop a web-based tool that is easy to use by the stakeholders;
- to test the implementation of the tool with real case studies;
- to distribute and disseminate the TALOE tool among the communities of stakeholders.

VM-Pass: Implementing Recognition of Virtual Mobility and OER Learning through a Learning Passport
Coordinator: University of Leicester, UK
VM-Pass aims to increase inter-institutional recognition of virtual mobility and OCW-based courses, by means of:
- building on results from OER test project and piloting the use of a student-held learning passport to facilitate recognition & mobility;
- planning, testing and creating a recognition-clearinghouse to support the verification and investigation of learning passports;
- creating a typology of quality systems used in VM and OER systems, to support the learning passports and recognition-clearinghouse, and
- engaging in dialogue with multiple institutions around Europe so as to mainstream use of the recognition tools created by the project.

E-SOLVE: E-learning SOLutions for VEt
Coordinator: University of Pannonia, HU
E-SOLVE aims to distil knowledge on Leonardo da Vinci projects dealing with e-learning, categorise them, select sectorial good-practices and disseminate them among VET stakeholders throughout Europe. The project’s focus will be on solutions that could be utilised in white-collar education and training. Besides meeting its stakeholders personally (personal meetings, workshops for stakeholders, annual conferences of the partners, “summer camp” for project managers, international conference) the E-SOLVE team wishes to compile an online showcase of e-learning solutions supported by fora in social media networks.
