Calderoni Online, an electronic learning resource management system and database for developing competences, was one of the most important outputs of the Calderoni Programme accomplished between the autumn of 2007 and the spring of 2008. A major objective of the programme was to disseminate the products, quality assurance systems, digital teaching materials and e-learning programmes developed in 50 higher education institutions in the framework of the New Development Programme Human Resource Development Operational Programme (NDP HRD OP) N3.3.1. Other major objectives of the NDP HR OP 3.3.2 included making the competence-based methods and programme packages available for the five teacher training institutions, setting up a database of digital teaching materials and teaching aids, ensuring the accessibility of courses and thus contributing to the achievement of synergy between the programmes of the New Development Plan and the New Hungary Development Plan.
The system provides an opportunity for the training institutions to widely disseminate their achievements. The dissemination offered by Calderoni Online is the propagation of the project outcomes in order to maximise the effects of the projects and the returns of the resources spent in their realisation. It comprises both sharing the outcomes (products) of the projects (new trainings, curricula, teaching material, teaching aids, etc.) and the experiences of realising a project (project management, cooperation, methodology, etc). The products’ owners are expected to use all these techniques in order to function as a kind of learning network that manages learning. It is the joint teamwork of the individual project teams that can bring about maximum results. Dissemination of material and information can be the most important tool for such a learning process.
These techniques were finally presented as part of the joint programme of the Hungarian Institute for Educational Research and Development and the Quality Improvement Committee of the Hungarian Accreditation Committee entitled ‘Using the same language for quality higher education - professional days’ between 5 and 7 February 2009. As a result of joint thinking the Calderoni Programme can be completed by several new elements, which may contribute to monitoring the processes of Bologna developments in higher education.
