Enhancing Student Mobility through Online Support

The Enhancing Student Mobility through Online Support (ESMOS) project is a European funded partnership between higher education institutions from Austria, Bulgaria, Italy, Lithuania and the United Kingdom. It has the aims of developing, evaluating and modelling the use of Virtual Learning Environments and online technologies to support students who take part in either a study exchange (ERASMUS) or work placement programme (LEONARDO), spending part of their studies overseas. [citation|title=The ESMOS Project and an SMS Pilot Study with International Exchange Students|author=H Keegan, L Griffiths, M James, S Whittle |publisher= iop.pcz.pl|url= http://iop.pcz.pl/esmos.org/documents/publications/papers/BBSMS.pdf]

ESMOS has generated interesting and relevant research and practice results from the implementation (Case Studies) of the Methodology, IT Support Model and Guidelines for the Online Support of International Mobility Students. These results have been disseminated widely through journal papers, conference papers, presentations, workshops, training sessions, promotional leaflets and media coverage.

The two-year project is funded by the SOCRATES Programme/Minerva Action, which seeks to promote European co-operation in the field of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Open and Distance Learning (ODL) in education.
