The FORTHEM Digital Academy has been officially launched and presented in Riga, on June 8th, during the final meeting of the FORTHEM Alliance. 

The Digital Academy is a set of eight interconnected e-learning platforms for virtual mobility, provision of online courses, collaboration and networking for students and staff. 

During the presentation, 13 new online courses were also presented, developed by teachers involved in the project. 

  • - 7 language courses, one for each national language of the FORTHEM partner universities: French, Spanish, German, Italian, Finnish, Polish, and Latvian. Most of these courses are provided in asynchronous modality, so students will be able to complete the activities according to their needs and schedules. However, some courses will also include synchronous activities, and direct communication between professors and students, in an international online classroom.
