A group of experts from four countries and five institutions has created a qualification profile and an associated online training for a new role in any higher education institution, the Online Assessment and Proctoring Manager (OPM). Therefore, this seminar aims to reveal the results of this effort and also to introduce with the current practices and challenges that different higher education institutions face while implementing online education. In other words, the qualification profile (skills needed) as well as an open online training designed, tested in four countries, and ready to be offered to anyone interested in gaining these skills, will be introduced during the seminar.

The project partnership is composed of four higher education institutions and a software company, which are Fachhochschule des Mittelstands (Bielefeld, Germany), Proctorio GmbH (Unterfoehring, Germany), Liepaja University (Liepaja, Latvia), Universita Telematica Internazionale – UNINETTUNO (Rome, Italy), Anadolu University (Eskişehir, Turkey).
