Digital Education

Course Description

The Digital education course gives an overview of technology-enhanced learning to the attending students. The focus is on technologies that support learners and teachers in the educational process and on technologies that enhance education and potentially lead to better results on exams and contribute to building skills such as collaboration or critical thinking. In addition to the engineering knowledge needed for the development of such technologies, usability of software for education and evaluation of educational solutions are the necessary components in achieving the eco-system of modern digital education.
