HOP for National Agencies

Few details for National Agencies and SALTOs to think when organising their first online learning course.

HOP is a platform where National Agencies of Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps as well as SALTO Resource Centres can publish their online learning courses and content. Institutions managing the programmes will find the HOP platform as a universal and well supported tool to implement and promote their online learning. HOP offers support and consultation for the officers at different moments, to make the best of their investment. Last but not least, HOP is the domestic tool, ensuring prominent recognition and visibility of the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps.

How does it work?

  • Arrangements for online learning course are not very different from any other TCA/NET activity.
  • Interested National Agency or SALTO needs to know, what is the general aim / idea for the course and potentially find partners to co-finance it (well TCA/NET planning board as well as¬† TCA/NET annual meetings are good spaces for such partner-finding).
  • This is a good moment to contact HOP admin and agree a base for the course implementation (just write to ). We are also signing a non-financial agreement with a NA/SALTO, very similar to regular TCA agreement, to regulate copy rights, responsibilities, etc. In principle, hosting the course at HOP platform is for free, as another service from SALTO network to the community!
  • Having the idea and resources, similarly to residential courses, a NA/SALTO needs to identify external experts to prepare the course (well, we are open also for brave officers who like to author the learning content themselves). SALTO offers TOY - Trainers Online for Youth. HOP cooperate with a group of online learning authors and facilitators and if needed can suggest a contact list, but we are open to work with any experts NA/SALTO find suitable.
  • Differently to many residential courses, the online learning activity will also require a graphic designer to produce visuals (ranging from several humble illustrations and finishing with advanced instructional videos).
  • Beside authors of learning content and a graphic designer, a NA/SALTO can decide to involve¬†external experts of the HOP council, experienced with HOP platform, to support the team in implementation of the course.
  • And then the production starts...

See you on the online learning paths!
