The SPUTNIC project
"Seminars Promoting the Use of Technologies for Networking and International Collaboration"
SPUTNIC is a one-year project supported by the European Commission under the Socrates, Accompanying Measures Programme. We have started our activities in January 2007 and the project will run until the end of December 2007.
SPUTNIC aims at raising awareness about the beneficial impact of the (pedagogically sound) implementation of new educational technologies that enhance international networking and collaboration for an institution, its staff and its students.
Through this website and our events, we aim to spread know-how in those educational technologies from successful Minerva and other Socrates projects and to provide a theoretical background as well as practical models and hands-on experience.
By doing so, we wish to stimulate teaching staff to engage in initiatives on international mobility and international cooperation.
More concretely, our focus will be on four main topics: Virtual Mobility, Web 2.0 applications, Digital Video Environments and Videoconferencing.
All our research and events evolve around these topics.
