The goal of the project is to enhance the skill set and expertise of (tourism) students of the four academic institutions, while also meeting current labor market requirements. This is done by developing several innovative, new course formats (university courses, Summer Schools, MOOCs) on the usage of ICTs in sustainable tourism development. Moreover, project outcomes will include an educational board game, a casebook, a teacher toolkit, a student guidebook on the topic as well as scientific publications. The project’s results will be available as Open Educational Resources. The Erasmus+ project serves as an excellent example for European cooperation and international knowledge exchange in the emerging fields of eTourism and Sustainable Tourism.
