"In several universities, virtual mobility comes in a form that is both lighter in terms of the number of courses followed by the foreign partner, but also more co-constructed. For example, within the framework of the European University Movidis, in which the University Côte d'Azur is involved, students in economic degree from Nice can choose one or two courses (in addition to a compulsory language class) offered by one of the partners including the universities of Turin, Madrid, Seville, Genoa and Biefield.
The most important is to "create a feeling of belonging", explains Virginie Oddo, director of the strategy development department at the University Côte d'Azur. "This goes through an immersion method (or 'dive-in'): I discover, I participate in online events, I create content ".
In the case of Movidis, mobility is validated by a teacher and registered in the study contract, which is "signed by the pedagogical manager and by the one of the following semester", further specifies
Virginie Oddo. "He/She will be responsible for validating the credits."
The University Côte d'Azur University has several European mobility programs like this one and is planning to set up a common web platform to connect its various networks."
