DigiReady+ Project, a new tool for HE

The 10th of February was celebrated online the kick off meeting of the DigiReady+ project in which EDEN Europe plays a key role as partner organization, alongside Panepistimio Patron, Universidad de Valladolid, Universitaet Duisburg-Essen and Akadimaiko Diadiktyo.

The aim of DigiReady+ is to define a framework and develop a prototype, in the form of a web tool that would connect to the learning management systems and other institutional informational systems, in order to measure digital readiness indicators for the particular higher education institution.

The DigiReady+ Tool wants to ensure the next key ideas

  • The DigiReady+ tool, in the form of an institutional dashboard of digital readiness, can be used by HEI’s stakeholders to provide information regarding potential issues and risks in the process of designing from scratch or adapting existing curricula to meet the needs of transitioning to digitally enhanced learning and teaching.
  • The learning analytics infrastructure for supporting HEI’s students at risk of dropping out or failing their studies will provide data-based insights to policymakers with respect to strategic planning.
  • The DigiReady+ Open-source Tool and the related Application ProgrammingInterfaces (API) provided by the project will allow, if necessary, the interested HEIs to further expand and customize the use of the framework and the associated analytics to their own needs and special conditions.

The Knowledge Repository will enable all stakeholders to take advantage of best practices, training materials, datasets, etc. developed throughout the project. It will also allow stakeholders of the participating organizations and other interested HEIs to further enrich such knowledge based on the use of the framework and the associated set of indicators and the toolkit in new scenarios.
