Pilot 1 Course “Entrepreneurship and Innovation”

Between  November 2014 and February 2015

The course “Entrepreneurship and Innovation” with a duration of 8 weeks of work with a minimum of 50 hours of student work, has been tested in is version Pilot 1. The pedagogical idea was based on SSDL – Staged Self Directed Learning and PLN – Personal Learning Network is encouraged. The main idea to work in the course was to work together in distributed groups using tools supporting distributed collaboration. OpenClass was used, tightly connected to Google.

With the experience and results acquired from this test Pilot 1, the consortium is now ready to launch Pilot 2 as a final offer of this course.
