Name of the Project: UNIVERSAL – Univerzalna Izmenjava med Evropskimi Visokošolskimi Ustanovami
Duration: 3/1/2000 – 1/31/2003

The UNIVERSAL Exchange for Pan-European Higher Education demonstrated the feasibility of an open exchange system for learning resources between institutions of higher education across Europe and elsewhere in the world. The system embraced offers, enquiries, booking and actual delivery of learning resources. The aim was to develop and validate a model and standards that could later be widened to embrace other groups of higher education institutions and that could be transplanted into the market for training in industry, commerce and government.

The main project results:

  • Platform development – a Universal Brokerage Platform (UBP) for exchange of learning resources has been developed. UBP is currently used as the basis of several educational portals, one of them being the EducaNext portal;
  • Interfaces with LCMS and delivery systems;
  • Delivery trials.
