EVOLVE Project has closed
The EVOLVE project has formally come to an end. The main project results are available from the Resources area of this website. Brief introductions to these resources are given on the next pages. For more information, consult our closing newsletter.
To make continued access to these resources possible, the following arrangements have been made:
- The EVOLVE website will remain available for 5 years after the project (2026);
- The research reports will continue to be accessible through the University of Groningen research portal;
- The EVOLVE email address email@example.com will be maintained for 5 more years.
- The EVOLVE Twitter account will be phased out and linked to other accounts used by project members (e.g. @UNICollaborate and @sakejgr).
If you have any questions about the EVOLVE results or procedures, you may direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the Training Resources section, you can view the complete Co-laboratory training module developed by the EVOLVE team. This training module is available as Open Educational Resource (OER), which can be used and adapted freely by educators and educational institutions.
A full copy of the training content is available from this website. The materials are accompanied by a guidebook for future course instructors in which we provide practical tips for making the most of the Co-Laboratory training. Institutions can import the training course as IMS Common Cartridge into their own virtual learning environments (VLEs).
Included in the Training Resources are also two evaluations reports and a list of related videos.
These EVOLVE research reports, including translations of the executive summaries in French, Italian, Polish and Spanish can be retrieved from Research resources area of this website, together with research tools used for our studies.
