Learner-Centric Online Teaching for Non-Computer Science Students.
Roessling, Guido; Trnkova, Jana; Langendorf, Uwe; Tillack, Karin; Muhlhauser, Max
This paper reports on two key elements of successful online teaching: learner-centric design and harmonization of content and facilities. The paper shows 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 31 educators from five European countries. The context of the project, called WiBA-Net, is explained, and the L3 system chosen for providing content access and navigation is introduced. The paper also outlines 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. (Contains 14 references and 4 figures.) (Author/AEF)
