As part of the credit mobility organization, students and university staff must enter into trilateral learning agreements that form the basis for the recognition of university qualifications acquired abroad. As indicated by the PRIME survey conducted by the Erasmus 2010-2011 student network, apprenticeship agreements are a cornerstone and at the same time constitute a major obstacle to the proper organisation of credit mobility. Indeed, the interlocutors are not clearly defined, the information necessary to implement the agreements is rarely available online and the possibility for students to change their apprenticeship agreement after their arrival in the receiving higher education institutions is 75%. In the same survey, some national LLP agencies proposed to create an online tool for the preparation, approval and revision of learning agreements in an online environment, and this is what this project intends to do. An online tool that allows mobile students to prepare, submit and sign their online learning contracts. The objective of the project is to enable students to prepare their learning agreements under an online system that will allow them to contact the detachment and hospitality coordinators of higher education institutions to finalize, approve and sign the document online. This process therefore transfers a paper workflow, which depends on timely mailings for signature purposes, into an online system that allows students to save a lot of time in preparing for their studies abroad and to create an increased degree of flexibility and efficiency in revising the learning agreement. The online software will also allow higher education institutions to integrate learning agreement management processes to improve the efficiency of the licensing and management process, giving staff time to work on other activities in international relations or improve the quality of credit mobility.

As part of the programme to modernise higher education systems in Europe, the EU has adopted the very ambitious target of reaching 20% of mobile students by 2020. While this figure is far from being reached in some Member States, in others, such as the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, more than 95% of students spend part of their studies abroad. However, the objective of making mobility the rule rather than an exception increases the administrative burden on higher education institutions and the need to remove barriers to student mobility.
