Dear all,

2011 was a very successful year for the REVEAL community.

LEVEL5 has been applied in new series of 20 informal learning projects and activities in the context of European projects and partnerships (VIP) and mobility projects (VILMA).

In the framework of both projects we organised our first LEVEL5 training course in Alden Biesen and two conferences in Göttingen and Leuven.

REVEAL members were invited as speakers in four large scale European events and generated much interest in the European educational community.

On the 30th of December we finally received the ultimate approval of the new project VITA (Validation of service-oriented learning outcomes with an innovative IT-based Assessment and Evidencing system) which will give us the opportunity to further develop LEVEL5 and to continue our European networking in 2012 and 2013.

We would like to thank you very much for your support and commitment and take the opportunity to announce the next REVEAL conference in June 2012 which will take place again in Göttingen.

There we will introduce to you the new LEVEL5 software and finalise our valorisation works that have been initiated in May 2010 with our first REVEAL conference at Lake Seeburg, Germany and eventually officially inaugurate REVEAL.

Hence 2012 will be a decisive year for us since we will start offering our common products and services round the theme of “validation of learning outcomes with LEVEL5” in many European members states. We will ground these services on a joint European organisational basis in the coming years.

We are very happy to collaborate with you and send you our best wishes for a happy and successful New Year!

Kind regards
