EDEN is the most comprehensive European association in the field of open, flexible, distance and e-learning. Its aim is to foster developments in distance and eLearning through the provision of a platform for collaboration between a wide range of institutions, networks and individuals concerned with ODL and e-learning in Europe. This is done by the information and networking activities in the membership, by the organisation of European conferences and publications. At the start of the MOVE-ON project the constantly developing EDEN Membership consisted of 194 institutional members and around 1100 individual members representing over 420 institutions from 58 countries. EDEN’s participation in EU programmes is focused on comprehensive strategic projects, in quality development, observatory, networking and knowledge base building, further supporting the implementation through networking, evaluation and dissemination of results.
Role in the project
EDEN, based on its former experience and extensive professional network, will be responsible for the dissemination and exploitation of the project results and outputs both via the use of electronic information channels (web sites and electronic newsletters) and via face to face events – such as by providing visibility within the programme of the EDEN conferences. The Association will also be offering the exploitation of the mobile platform and contribute to the evaluation/validation of the overall service with real-users.
