The project is financed by the LLP program of the European Union and is running from 2010 to 2012.

Participants from our department, authors of the 3 online courses in the area of film studies:

  • dr. Fazakas Áron: Film Music, online from October 2011.

The description of the project:

THE EUROPEAN VIRTUAL ACADEMY project aims to provide a comfortable space for learning and teaching the universities of the XXIst century. It will initiate and develop a transnational educational platform, following the general tendency for digitization of the cultural discourses, and by this the project is meant primarily to start a series of virtual online courses, developed by professors from arts and humanities sciences, linked with visual culture education. This would involve professionals who already have artistic background (studies in imaginary, studies in the philosophy of visual culture, studies on film and television and so on), and their knowledge and skills are going to be placed in the context of learning in an augmented reality setting.
The development of the series tutorial will begin in the 2010-2012. While the whole system of courses will become a digital replica of a real university, with library, classrooms and workshop, laboratories and forum space, the educational process would be made available to all the students of the participating universities. Thus the EVA campus will cover all basic needs, including chat, messaging, video conferencing and question banks for students, while, at tools level will use open source philosophy, primarily putting forward software platforms available to users such as Open Office, CeltX, Google Documents etc., and grounding in the common copyright principles for all materials.
The program is generated by universities in four EU countries and the participating departments are selected from the fields of arts, media, letters and philosophy. The common language tutorials will be the English, either spoken, or subtitled. For starters the product would be available only for the participant institutions, all the students of these institutions benefiting from the inscription in the program, but later the project could open for other European partners, if they would join in the technological and academic effort.
