As a coordinator, you have three ways of accessing your learning agreements:
1. Login with google: allows you to access the learning agreement using your gmail account by entering dream-agreement.eu and choosing to Login with Google. There you can choose to create a new agreement or view your existing agreements.
2. Access an existing agreement: you will receive an email from the sending or receiving institution that created the agreement or from the student which will contain the link to access the agreement. This works even if you do don’t have a gmail account.
