Mobility can be embedded within a course through learning activities such as summer or winter schools, intensive programmes (physical mobility) or international virtual seminars, think tanks, projects (blended or virtual mobility). These collaborative learning activities are jointly designed by the partnership. Mobility is embedded as it is part of these activities. Interactions between students as well as with staff are a main characteristic in this type of mobility.
This mobility is awarded with a credit or another credential which is to be mentioned in the course description and subsequently on the diploma supplement.
In some cases, these learning activities are developed as an elective in a curriculum, e.g. in an honours programme.
Blended and online mobility schemes of this type are frequently organized in the framework of strategic partnerships and other parts of the Erasmus+ programme with a limited number of universities, but universities take such initiatives also outside of any European programme as an extension of their research collaboration.
