E-learning Technologies

Course Description

E-education or the application of ICT (information and communication technology) in educational processes is a hot topic today. However, one needs to be well acquainted with the properties of both technologies and the educational processes in order for this compound to be effective. Do you know when it’s better to use text than an image to explain something, or a series of images instead of a video, spoken word instead of text? Everyone is recording lectures today, but what should the recording be like and what else needs to be added to make it useful for learning? What is the difference between a lecture recording and an educational video? What properties must an educational video have? What technologies are used to achieve this? How is quality audio and video recording technically achieved? What technologies can be used to improve the interactivity of lectures and student collaboration in learning? Can a computer objectively check competencies, as a human would do, or is there still a lack of technology for that? In which cases and what kind? What is the difference between a virtual and a remote lab? What are they for? How can they be built? What are “Programmed Learning” and “Guided Learning”? How are they achieved?

Learning Outcomes

  1. Describe how humans learn
  2. Create short educational video
  3. Create computer based assesment of factual, procedural and conceptual knowledge
  4. Choose and apply approrpiate audience response tools for classroom.
  5. Define required technical properties of a virtual laboratory or simulator

Forms of Teaching

Lectures

Lectures are held weekly. There is a class preparation assignment for each lecture.

Seminars and workshops

Within the course students work on a practical assignment thematically related to the course.
