Im September ist der LS WIIM – nämlich Prof. Schoop, Anne Jantos und Moritz Hesse – nach Riga gereist, um Studierende vor Ort für das Thema internationales E-Learning und eine konkrete VCL zu gewinnen. Wir konnten in einigen Vorträgen zum Thema E-Learning Interesse für den Standort Dresden und auch zum virtuellen Lernen wecken.
Für das Sommersemester 2017 gibt es noch 150 ERASMUS-Stipendien für freie ERASMUS-Plätze.
Bewerbungen sind umgehend jedoch spätestens bis 01. Oktober 2016 möglich.
The Kick-Off meeting of the forty fifth VCL Project was held successfully with the participation of the three universities in Dresden, Riga and Tallinn.
After a welcome message from Prof. Dr. Eric Schoop, Matthias introduced the participating student with first information about the Virtual Collaboration Project that will be worked on in the next six week and the next steps they will have to take on the learning platform.
We wish our students and colleagues much fun and an exciting experience in the virtual phase.
Short before 09:00 PM, the last session today was finished. Wissam talked about:
- The paradigm shift in E2.0
- Social Software in E2.0
- Change of technical tools and
- Collaboration in E2.0
While gaining an insight into civil life of the Estonians yesterday, Corinna and Michel used the Sunday for a more technical museum. The Seaplane Museum exhibites various ships, sailing boats, bouys, a submarine and of course a seaplane. It also provides information about the military of Estonia of the last century and how their technique and defense strategy evolved. They were amazed how modern IT is already implemented to foster the visitors learning processes. Nearly every group of exhibits has an own monitor were a videos or some fotos are displayed in addition to a more detailled text or some simulators, too. More interested visitors were enabled sending information of the exhibition to their e-mail-addresses.
After successfully finishing our first lectures at the TTU in Tallinn and the virtual classroom yesterday, we (Michel and Corinna) used our free time today to become more familiar with our partner’s city and the Estonian culture. We took a city tour bus and had some nice views on the president`s residence, the song festival ground, the nature around the city centre, and the harbour. Afterwards we visited the Estonian open-air museum with about 100 farmsteads, mills, an old school and a chapel from 1699. All these original buildings showed us, how life in last 2 centuries looked alike. It was quite impressive to see how life changed during this period.
