Kick-Off Week: BlendEd Course in Orléans

The University of Orléans (France) hosted the BlendEd Course Kick-Off week, which took place from the 13th to the 17th of February.

This year’s BlendEd edition gathers 52 students organized into 5 teams. Each team must devise a solution for the problem posted by a specific company.

During this week, the students got to know their project challenge and their teammates, had the opportunity to get familiar with Design Thinking and SCRUM frameworks in a “SCRUM Thinking” workshop, and engaged in Teambuilding and Intercultural activities.

For the next few months, students, companies, and teachers will be working at a distance on the proposed solutions. The final results will be presented “live” in Heraklion at the Hellenic Mediterranean University (Greece) by the end of June.
