TeSLA creating new opportunities for distance learning

We are delighted to be a part of TeSLA Project, which aims to improve the online assessment process by introducing tools and resources in learning activities that gather data to enable students to be authenticated and identified. TeSLA, Adaptive Trust-based e-assessment System for Learning, will be developed to reduce the current restrictions of time and physical space in teaching and learning, which opens up new opportunities for distance learning. The system will follow the interoperability standards for integration into different learning environments.

The TeSLA consortium is made up of 18 organizations that are experts in different knowledge and research areas across Europe, we are one of the university partners. The project is funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme with a consortium budget of 7 million euros in three years, and it has started in January 2016. The system is developed in cooperation with universities, research centers, companies and quality assurance agencies to ensure that relevant education, privacy and ethical issues are taken into  account, and educational and technological requirements are met throughout Europe.

The universities involved in the project will undertake a series of large-scale pilot tests with over 14,000 students from all over Europe, respecting social and cultural differences, guaranteeing equal opportunities and providing an inclusive solution. TeSLA will support both continuous and final assessment to improve the trust level across students, teachers and institutions.
