This platform, powered by Interact, enhances knowledge delivery and learning experiences within the Interreg community. The courses are tailor-made for the Interreg community, allowing you to be flexible in what, how, when and where you learn.
We bring together expertise from all over Europe and from different types of stakeholders. Course authors and other course contributors share their experience and expertise with you through videos, articles, quizzes and discussions.
You are very welcome to join our online courses and meet other learners from all around Europe.
How does it work
Interact online courses:
- Course catalogue: At the top right of the page you can find the “Course catalogue” button. Click on it and you’re ready to browse through all of our courses and find the right one for you. We offer courses in a diverse range of topics and we will be adding more in time.
- Course language: All our courses are in English only because English is the working language of the Interact Programme. Where relevant, some course authors might add links to online resources in other European languages.
- Course duration: Courses vary in length; some you can complete within an hour, while for others you will need to set aside several hours. Our courses are self-paced, which means that you can work at your own pace and rhythm, and whenever it suits you best.
- Course availability: Once you enrol in the course you will have unlimited access to the course, for as long as it exists on Interact’s Online Learning Platform. Typically, this would mean at least until the end of the programming period.
- Course costs: Taking a course is completely free of charge. All you need is a computer or a mobile device, and Internet access.
- Contact us: If you have any questions regarding the platform or a specific course, please get in touch with us using the contact form that you can find on the home page – click on the “Contact us” button in the top right corner.
- Sign up for the platform: The Interact Online Learning Platform has a single sign up through the Interact Contact Database. This means that you need to first register in the Interact Contact Database. Once you are registered, you simply use the same email and password combination to access the Interact Online Learning Platform.
- Platform log in: In the top right corner of our homepage you will find the “log in” option. Once you’ve clicked on it, you can log in with your email address and password.
- Enrol in a course: Just browse through our course catalogue (menu option in the top right corner) to select a course that interests you. To start the course, simply click on the “enrol” button you will find on the course page below the course description.
- Your dashboard: Once you are signed in to the platform you can easily access your courses and monitor your progress on your dashboard.
- Cancelling enrolment from a course: If you wish to un-enrol, please contact the course developer or use the contact form in the “Contact us” section.
- Course structure: Each course is divided into lessons that are grouped in sections. You can access any lesson from the course syllabus on the main course page or course map which appears in the panel to the right of each lesson. However, we recommend that you start with the first lesson, as this will give you information about the course and its content.
- Course navigation: At the end of each lesson you can find links to the previous and to the next lessons. Where relevant, other links between course lessons might appear on the lesson page. At the start of the lesson (above the lesson title) is a link that will take you back to the course overview.
- Progress in the course: There is a button “Mark as complete” at the end of each lesson. This allows you to mark it as complete, which then updates your progress bar. Not using the button does not prevent you from moving on to the next step.
- Course interactivity: You can learn by watching videos, listening to audio, reading text on the page or attached documents, and using interactive tools.
- Quizzes: Many activities will include questions or a quiz, providing you with a moment to pause and check how well you’ve understood the key points in the lesson before moving on. The quizzes are not scored; you can re-try many of them and you will find feedback and hints attached to them.
- Discussions within the course: Some courses and their lessons have a space to allow learners to comment and ask questions. They appear at the end of the lesson.
