The meeting was specially focused on the portal update, demonstrating the improvements and new functionalities implemented during the last period, as well as in examining the progress of the content integration and population task.It is relevant to mention the VOA3R – Semagrow Stakeholder joint Meeting that was held during the second day of the meeting.
As for the LinQ conference, it was aimed at addressing Innovations and Quality in Lifelong Learning, Education and Training: potential points of access to this field include new learning methods and design, Technology-Enhanced Learning, quality standards and certification, human resources development, competences and skills, digital resources, learning materials, and online collaboration and communities.
