Stay In logo How important is student guidance to you?

BRUSSELS - Along a period of two years, the consortium formed by UNIMC – University of Macerata – lead partner, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, University of Seville, MELIUS – International Mobility and Employment, EDEN – European Distance and E-Learning Network, Arcola Research LLP, Lynx s.r.l. and ESU – European Students Union has designed and developed a service  capable of supporting students in higher education during their academic career, by offering guidance and e-guidance to access  available opportunities within the universities and in the communities where the universities are active.

Guidance has been conceived of as personalised support for each student to tackle potential obstacles that lead to disengagement and drop-out. At the end of the project, the results include:

  • an integrated guidance and counselling system for universities, covering processes, methods, tools;
  • an eGuidance platform  for European universities, designed and developed in order to address the specific needs of higher education institutions and higher education students for of guidance and counselling services, and suitable for supporting on-going guidance and counselling;
  • an updated picture of the practices across Europe on guidance for inclusion, and of the student’s point of view on guidance and e-guidance needs during their educational experience.

The initial phase of the project concentrated on carrying out research activities to give an overview on the actual status of the guidance services and the needs for development/improvement. In this regard, the ‘Guidance for inclusion: practices and needs in European Universities’, (April  2013) was produced as one of the main outcomes of the project covering: results of the analysed practices; approaches and features of guidance and counselling services that are potentially transferable to HEI’s; results of the student survey; recommendations for guidance and counselling services.

STAY IN has developed and tested an open-source web-based platform to help students to avoid drop out. The platform is based upon the software called WISP (Web Integrated Services Provider).

The platform was tested in the three partner universities from Italy, Hungary and Spain and a manual for users has been prepared in their languages. More details @

03:02 on 26 Oct 15 In short, the microservice architectural style is an approach to developing a single application as a suite of small services, each running in its own process and communicating with lightweight mechanisms, often an resource API. These services are built around business capabilities and independently deployable by fully automated deployment machinery. There is a bare minimum of centralized management of these services, which may be written in different programming languages and use different data storage technologies. To start explaining the microservice style it's useful to compare it to the monolithic style: a monolithic application built as a single unit. Enterprise Applications are often built in three main parts: a client-side user interface (consisting of HTML pages and javascript running in a browser on the user's machine) a database (consisting of many tables inserted into a common, and usually relational, database management system), and a server-side application. The server-side application will handle HTTP requests, execute domain logic, retrieve and update data from the database, and select and populate HTML views to be sent to the browser. This server-side application is a monolith - a single logical executable[2]. Any changes to the system involve building and deploying a new version of the server-side application. Such a monolithic server is a natural way to approach building such a system. All your logic for handling a request runs in a single process, allowing you to use the basic features of your language to divide up the application into classes, functions, and namespaces. With some care, you can run and test the application on a developer's laptop, and use a deployment pipeline to ensure that changes are properly tested and deployed into production. You can horizontally scale the monolith by running many instances behind a load-balancer. Monolithic applications can be successful, but increasingly people are feeling frustrations with them - especially as more applications are being deployed to the cloud . Change cycles are tied together - a change made to a small part of the application, requires the entire monolith to be rebuilt and deployed. Over time it's often hard to keep a good modular structure, making it harder to keep changes that ought to only affect one module within that module. Scaling requires scaling of the entire application rather than parts of it that require greater resource.
