Abstract

Every year, several thousand students in Morocco participate in practical laboratory activities of science and technology in order to acquire new skills and verify equations already presented in the theoretical courses. In recent years, these practical activities have, unfortunately, been interrupted because of the problems of overstaffing of students in the faculties of science in Morocco. In order to remedy this situation and allow our students to stay in touch with the world of experience, we proposed the Experes project in the Erasmus+ framework to all Moroccan universities. This initiative is coordinated by the University of Murcia (Spain) and the Abdelmalek Essaâdi University (Morocco) with the involvement of all Moroccan universities, the ministry and European partners. In this paper we described the approach and the current results of the Experes project. This paper is presented according to six sections. The first gives an introduction to the work that has been done. The second section presents the Erasmus+ project Experes. The third part of the paper describes the methodology followed for the Experes project development. The fourth section is technical and in which we define the tools used and the output programmed applications of the project. The fifth part revolves around the testing phase of the applications produced by the Experes project. Finally, we conclude this article with a conclusion.
