Massive Open Online Course on Erasmus+ launches in May

A new online course on Erasmus+ Funding Opportunities for Youth is set to begin on 4 May 2015. The course provides an overview of the purpose, priorities and expected impact of the European Union’s funding programme Erasmus+: Youth in Action.  The first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), running from 4 May until 1 June 2015, will guide through Key Action 1 Mobility Project for Young People and Youth Workers (youth exchanges, European Voluntary Service and mobility of youth workers).

This course will create space for networking and will help you find out how to participate in European youth cooperations and international youth work by applying for Erasmus+ funding.

Course resources will include video materials on topics ranging from general information about the programme to specific steps about how to develop good-quality projects.

No prerequisites and no fees are required but active participation during the 3-4 hours of online courses per week is requested.

Sign up for the course here. There is no deadline for subscriptions but the course gets underway on 4 May 2015.

This MOOC is coordinated by SALTO-YOUTH Participation Resource Centre in collaboration with the Erasmus+ Youth in Action National Agencies from Belgium (FR), France, Ireland, Iceland, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Hungary and United Kingdom and funded by the Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme.
