HOP for Key Action 2 consortiums

Plenty of Erasmus+ Key Action 2 projects include online courses. HOP offers space for your courses!

HOP is a platform where online courses implemented within the Erasmus+ Key Action 2 projects can find their place. Why to look for technical solutions for your online course? Focus at content and make sure to offer best learning experience! Hosting your course at HOP allows for better sustainability, as the platform is maintained despite your project. It also allows to reach many potential learners. There are already thousands of them at HOP and interested in youth work issues.

How does it work?

  • In case your KA2 project is officially granted and you are interested to host the online course(s) within your project at HOP, please write to
  • If you like, we can open space at HOP for you, so you can try it out and experiment how HOP works.
  • If you are decided, we will sign the non-financial agreement with the consortium partner responsible for online course, so it is clear that you are responsible and owner of the course (including relevant copy rights for all the contents) and HOP offers the platform's space. This also means that you can delete or transfer your course any moment you like (HOP is based on Moodle, so transferring courses is not a big issue).
  • In parallel, we will open the space at HOP for your course (alternatively we can change the character of your trail space into the course's building site), so you can start with creating the course.
  • Anyway, please remember that uploading the content into online learning platform is one of the last phases of course creation. Preparing the idea, designing the learning paths, developing contents (esp. including multimedia) etc. should come before you start creating your course at HOP.
  • In principle, hosting the course at HOP platform is for free, as another service from SALTO network to the community!
  • In case consortium member responsible for online course in the project has little experience at HOP (less than 3 courses implemented), we require that at least the basic support service from HOP council is employed by the consortium (small package made of at least 12 hours mentoring). This would make it easier for you to create the course specifically at HOP and would assure us that HOP quality standards of online learning in the non-formal education are being met.

SMALL MEDIUM CRASH COURSE

HOP offers mentoring for teams implementing courses at the platform, especially if they have little experience with HOP itself (less than 3 courses). This support can be especially valuable for teams that urgently needs to create a course at HOP. The minimum mentoring should cover at least 12 hours (fee for expert needs to be agreed directly).

HOP brings online course about designing online learning "Plan, create and publish" as a self-paced exercise, plus at least 8 hours of mentoring (depending on the needs of a team, if it is only about HOP platform, 8 hours might be enough, if it is also about quality in online learning, then suggestion is to have more mentoring hours). The "Plan, create and publish" is for free and fee for mentoring needs to be agreed directly with expert.

HOP organises advanced trainings on quality online learning in the youth field for beginners (new to online learning or new to HOP platform), as a blended course. It is made of webinar sessions as preparation, 3 day residential course as well as full online, facilitated course about designing online learning "Plan, create and publish". The crash course also includes 8 hours free mentoring process for teams implementing courses at HOP.
