The open version Up2U learning environment is available to all educational institutions in Europe in order to enhance online learning in these extreme times.
COVID-19 outbreak has a major impact on people’s day-to-day lives and also on European education. Therefore the Up to University (Up2U) project, supported by GÉANT, has decided to offer an open version of our Up2U learning environment to all educational institutions in Europe: openUp2U in order to enhance online learning in these extreme times.
openUp2U is a trimmed version of our Next Generation Digital Learning Environment learn.up2univerisity.eu, offered on a best effort basis. The platform will consist of the following tools:
Up2U project partners are not-for-profit organisations, universities and SMEs to support research and education. GÉANT is the umbrella organisation in Europe with members in each country that is a national research and education network (NREN), which are already supporting education with network connectivity and also additional services.
openUp2U is based on the is a 41-month long EC funded collaborative project Up2U that started in January 2017. The key objective of the project is to bridge the gap between secondary schools and higher education & research by enhancing the digital skills of students. Additional support is coming from GÉANT, CERN, KIFU (Hungary), GRNET (Greece), NORDUnet, OwnCloud, PSNC (Poland) and AWS.
Our thoughts are with those in lockdown.
Let’s make sure that COVID-19 will not lead to an educational shutdown!
