The situation regarding physical and virtual mobility as well as e-learning in the countries involved in the project is very different but a need for mobility and internationalisation of higher education institutions is common to all countries involved in the projects and also defined in some key national documents and potentials for e-learning developments.
The interim report on the research results has shown that students need more support to be successful and efficient in virtual learning environment. Close co-operation between provider and consumer colleges/universities is needed to prevent false expectations of students taking part in a VM course, encourage participation and prevent drop-outs and thus enhance students' performance in the course because they have very little or no experience in online learning.
The main objective of the Pre-VM project is to encourage participation and enhance efficiency of VM in higher education.
It builds on the results of earlier findings and experiences as well as on recommendations of previous projects on VM co-funded by EC that reflect theses findings and experiences: developing support for experiencing online learning in a multinational and multicultural environment (collaboration, written communication, communication in a foreign language, social isolation, intercultural differences) and to interactions between provider (offering courses, course materials, etc.) and consumer (providing the students with access to material/services offered by a provider college/university).
