The apprenticeship agreement is a key document for Erasmus mobility. From the Erasmus programme 2021-2027, e-learning agreements become the norm. In recent years, we have seen how digital learning agreements can significantly reduce the administrative burden and provide students with a quality mobility experience. In the past, the complexity of red tape has resulted in learning agreements not always being concluded before departure, as well as problems with ECTS recognition after students return home. Apprenticeship agreements established for this semester as well as apprenticeship agreements for internships are now available via the old OLA platform. In 2015, ESN joined the European Foundation for Higher Education (EUF) initiative, the Online Learning Agreement, which would develop a tool for students and universities that could be used online for the creation and signing of a learning agreement. In May 2017, the OLA was created to demonstrate the concept of experimentation and adoption of higher education institutions. The EUF has launched another project, OLA, which has added new features to the platform, such as apprenticeship agreements for internships and measuring user satisfaction. In a study conducted in late 2019-early 2020, more than 90% of students said they would recommend OLA to their peers. In addition, 93% of IRO believe that all apprenticeship agreements should be concluded online through a user-friendly tool. This webinar will illustrate how tools such as the Erasmus scoreboard and the e-learning agreement can help universities comply with the RGPD and facilitate a smooth transition to the next programme.
Speakers will present their views and expertise on how to ensure that their own universities are in compliance with the RGPD and will share advice with colleagues interested in the topic. OLA and Erasmus Without Paper are the first two major digitisation initiatives in which the Erasmus student network has played an important role. Subsequently, ESN is actively involved in other digitisation initiatives, such as Erasmus Skills or the new Erasmus application. The new version of the online learning agreement platform has been published and is now available to the Erasmus generation as an integral part of the process of digitising the Erasmus programme. EWP 2.0 is an extension of the first paperless Erasmus project (end: 31/10/2017). The fundamental objective of the project is to enable an electronic network with dynamic recording (with link information in manifest files) and to define a set of APIs (advanced programming interface) for heIs or service providers.
