Nowadays, Europe is involved in a huge change in the Higher Education System in order to create overall convergence at European level. These changes are usually top-down policy decisions to improve the education system. On the other hand, the Erasmus Programme (launched in 1987) is one of the best-known Community actions and encourages student mobility translational cooperation among Higher Education Institutions across Europe managed by the Executive Agency.

Mobiblog the European Weblog Platform for Mobile Students (http://www.mobi-blog.eu) aims at bridging traditional story telling approaches with Web 2.0 applications, at fostering processes of model learning, self refection and independent decision making of European exchange students and at informally supporting learners in formal Higher Education environments. A key issue for Mobiblog is how it can provide a bridge between the ‘formal’ and ‘informal’ learning domains. The conceptual framework therefore needs to incorporate a model of the interaction between learning across different target users, and at different levels of scale, in order to address the project’s commitment to developing methods and tools that are applicable at European, national, regional and local levels. In this paper, we analyse how students write comments about their experiences in foreign countries, and discovering the implicit knowledge they have from the Erasmus travelling. Using Storytelling as a means of experimenting innovative pedagogy, Mobiblog can help young people in Europe to know better each other and fully enjoy the process (using a bottom-up approach with web 2.0 technology). The results of this analysis will be summarise and linked with a wiki-based system for knowledge exchange.
