Learner-Centric Online Teaching for Non-Computer Science Students
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThis paper reports on two key elements of successful online teaching: learner-centric design and harmonization of content and facilities. We show how these two crucial requirements could be fulfilled with great success in a project that involves a non-computing related subject matter (civil engineering) and thirty-one educators from five European countries. We explain the context of the project, called WiBA-Net, and introduce the L3 system chosen for providing content access and navigation. We also outline key decisions in designing and building WiBA-Net, emphasizing the two crucial aspects mentioned above. This outline can serve as a guideline for projects in other subject matters and context, and is thus regarded as valuable for a general audience.
