Outcomes of the activity

The facilitators’ team collected few of the many participants’ feedback illustrating their learning outcomes and readiness to implement Erasmus+ projects:

“I think in our technologically advanced world going online, I mean having seminars and courses online will save our time and money. Moreover, it will be possible to engage many people.”

“In this MOOC I learned how to implement successful project, gained project management skills, learned more about Erasmus and how to fill the application form”

“I feel that we should all learn more about the great ERASMUS PLUS program and that educators need to be trained and should provide support to the learners.”

“This course paves the way for developing a project for young people, a project that will lead them to their own way, make them incredible in their own strengths! Thank you for your convenience and interesting materials!”

“I learned a lot because I hadn't any previous experience. I hope I'll have the chance and opportunity to use my new knowledge creatively and successfully in the near future! Thank you very much!!!”
