Introducing Virtual Blended Mobility as an internationalization at home instrument requires innovative virtual teaching and learning tools.
For this purpose, the VALEU-X project provides specific equipment that allows Albanian HEIs to achieve high quality ICT-based internationalization at home activities.
Among others, the European University of Tirana and “Fan S. Noli” University are happy to share the opening of the VALEU-X centres where the educational technology equipment will be hosted and used for VCL courses.
The European University of Tirana – UET has announced the opening of the center which will facilitate the development of institutional road-maps and action plans for the implementation of open education at institutional level. The center is now equipped with 30 computers, one video conference camera and one Microsoft License. As such, this enables also the setting up of the virtual learning center that will happen soon.
The European University of Tirana divided the VALEU-X centre into two parts; one which contains only computers to be used by students and the other part is added to another existing structure created by another Erasmus + project, Vtech, which completes the VR / AR laboratory at UET university. The lab will be used by academic staff trained to use this modern technology. The opening of the VALEU-X hub was promoted on the university’s social media as follows:
‘#ValueXartner_UET is happy to announce the opening of the Value-X center, on behalf of the project “Virtual Albanian European Universities Exchange”, Erasmus + CBHE project, co-funded by the European Union, which will facilitate the development of institutional roadmaps and action plans for the implementation of open education at institutional level. The center is now equipped with 30 computers, one video conference system and Microsoft Licenses. As such, this enables also the setting up of the virtual learning center that will happen soon.’
In October 2020, on the occasion of the Erasmus Days dissemination event, the Universiteti “Aleksandër Xhuvani” Elbasan inaugurated the VALEU-X Laboratory, which looks an inspiring space for virtual mobility:
“Fan S. Noli” University organized a promotional activity to open the VALEU-X VIRTUAL MOBILITY CENTER on April 12th. E-tutors, some academic staff and International Relations officers attended the event together with local media.
