TraMOOC, a Horizon 2020 collaborative project aiming at providing reliable machine Translation for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), hosted an extraordinary productive meeting in Corfu.
The consortium is made up of six European universities Humboldt Universität zu Berlin (UBER), Dublin City University (DCU), University of Edinburgh (UEDIN), Ionian University (IURC), Stichting Katholieke Universiteit (Radboud University), Stichting Katholieke Universiteit Brabant (Tilburg University), two industrial partners Deluxe Media Europe (DME), EASN-Technology Innovation Services (BVBA), and Knowledge 4 All Foundation Ltd (K4A), and it will run until 31 January 2018.
We presented our project TraMOOC at the EMOOCs 2017 which was co-located with the OPENedX conference 2017. This is the leading European MOOC conference and our project was also showcased as an exemplar by Javier Hernández-Ros, director of the Data Directorate at the European Commission.
Together with us was our colleague Gonçal Garcés Díaz-Munío from the Machine Learning and Language Processing lab at Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain running PoliTrans and moderator Thomas Staubitz from the Hasso-Plattner-Institut Potsdam in Germany running the openHPI platform.
Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever, with 79 billion euros of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020). K4A has been successful in applying for funding and is currently participating in two relevant projects X5gon and TraMOOC.
The new project X5gon will combine content understanding, user modelling and quality assurance methods and tools to boost creating a homogenous network of (OER) sites and provide users (teachers, learners) with a common learning experience. X5gon will deploy open technologies for recommendation, learning analytics and learning personalisation services that will work across various OER sites, independent of languages, modalities, scientific domains, and cultural contexts.
