The HOP fosters online learning in Erasmus+ Youth in Action and European Solidarity Corps programmes. It offers growing number of online courses targeting different aspects of European youth work. HOP is a community that brings together learners, authors and facilitators of online courses and National Agencies of both European youth programmes as well as the SALTO Resource Centres to work together on rising the quality in youth projects.
The HOP targets first of all youth workers and projects' coordinators. Young people, especially participants of the Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps projects, can also benefit from selected courses. Youth policy actors, especially officers of institutions related to Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes will be able to find interesting training materials as well.
The HOP platform was established in 2017 in cooperation between several SALTO Resource Centres and National Agencies of Erasmus+ as a base for their online course on volunteering activities. It appeared soon, that the platform can easily host other courses, allowing to create a community of Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps online learners.
The HOP platform is based on newest Moodle software – advanced learning management system. Content of online courses is offered by institutions implementing Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes. Implementation of the platform as well as support to institutions offering online learning is provided by SALTO Eastern Europe and Caucasus Resource Centre as their horizontal task for the sake of European youth work.
