O4 - Online platform and pilots

In the 4th phase of the project, the online platform has been designed and set up in a Moodle environment.

Course components have been finalized and implemented in the English version. Hungarian, French and Spanish content will be uploaded as long as the English course is finalized, reviewed and approved. The course content is motivating, encourages collaboration, knowledge sharing, online communication and facilitates the activities of the participants by all means of the e-learning environment. These technological components are: learning outcomes, self-assessment tools, blogs, forums, glossary, games, e-portfolios, video tutorials.

We use a topic-oriented course structure based on a well-planned timeline. It will not be a store of online learning contents where the participants are left alone (to learn in their own pace). Instead it will be a guided learning with the presence of the tutor, who facilitates the learning process, and pays attention to each and every participant.

The pilots started in May and closed at the end of June in 2019. 130 persons registered initially on the e-learning platform (https://moodle.grandis21.hu/), and 100 of them performed activities in the courses from five countries: Hungary, Spain, France, UK, Ireland.

One of the main aims of the pilots was to facilitate the participants (formal and informal caregivers) to involve their care recipient(s) into experiments while they were working on their assignment of Module 4.

The number of participants who completed the whole course successfully was 48. The number of older adults directly involved into the experiments by course participants was 150.

According to the results of the evaluation survey the participants were highly satisfied with the learning content and with the course as a whole. In a scale of 1-5, all parts of the course were scored above 4. They appreciated especially the work of the mentors, the organization and structure of the course, they rated the assignments to be very inspiring and well balanced (not too difficult and not too easy).
