We are creating BLOOM, an European-wide hub to support blended learning, mobility and networking in higher education

The BLOOM Hub is one of the Open U project's main outputs. It is a shared European digital infrastructure that will inform and guide higher education professionals and students on various topics such as educational innovation, joint education, mobility programmes.

Here on the BLOOM Hub's Portal, the digital infrastructure enables Higher Education Institutions and European University Alliances alike to share content, best practices and resources as well as brdige towards existing local repositories. Higher Education Institutions are encouraged to promote their learning offers, co-create and co-deliver innovative pedagogies and learning opportunities, and integrate existing solutions for streamlining administrative processes for student and staff mobility.

The Hub hosts the Community Portal to the Pedagogical Guidelines, where the Community of Practice can get in touch with their peers, share ideas and feedback regarding the Pedagogical Guidelines.

In order to access the BLOOM Hub Community Portal, you need to be logged in. The BLOOM Hub is connected to the eduGAIN interfederation service, allowing you to use your existing academic credentials. Upon logging in, you will be forwarded towards the gateway, where you can select your home organization and will be redirected there to authenticate. From there, you will be brought back to the Hub and you will be able to access the content. You can initiate the login by clicking here.

Should your institution or organization not be registered with eduGAIN, then you can set up a local account here. Please contact us if your instutution or organizations domain is not yet whitelisted.
