The main objectives of VIRQUAL are to help educational and training institutions to (a) achieve Virtual Mobility, and (b) guarantee EQF implementation through eLearning. VIRQUAL promotes cooperation and joint work among partner organisations and links with related initiatives. Since summer 2010 the consortium has concentrated in three tasks including the preparation of webinars that will take place in during 2011.Task 1: eLearnig and EQF: a comprehensive analysis of the EQF implementation in Europe compiling 32 country reports on EQF/NQF implementation, at levels 5 to 8 has been collected. Additionally, the situation of e-learning in what concerns legislation and practice in each of the 32 countries was also reported. The analysis of the information pack will allow access to updated information on EQF, recognition of competences and e-learning legislation by country as a consulting instrument.Task 2: Three webinars, each one with one expert invited speaker on the general theme of e-learning and EQF followed by an online discussion with the participants and with the participation in other dissemination events.Task 3: How can we support teachers and curriculum developers defining, writing, or choosing high quality learning outcomes? How can we contribute to a global architecture of learning outcomes/competences? What is a useful classification system for learning 0utcomes/competences? The means to answer these questions is a web-based data base, the ILO One of the fundaments of its data structure is the classification of learning outcomes according to EQF which distinguishes knowledge, skills and competences
