The 2015 Yerevan Ministerial conference has placed teaching as the core objective of the European Higher Education Area, ‘stressing that enhancing the quality and relevance of learning and teaching is the main mission of the EHEA'(Yerevan Communiqué, p.2).
The use of digital technologies is one of the methods that can boost the quality of the teaching process and the EU has adopted in the last years’ several key documents with the aim to support and guide the member states in building digital learning environments. The Digital Education Action Plan or the Communication from the Commission on a renewed higher education agenda are representative in this direction.
New impetus for digital skills-based educational dimension was also reinforced through the VdL EU Commission agenda which aims to make the European Educational Area a reality by 2025.
