Alexander Dubček University in Trenčín
Modern online study and content digitisation
A virtual university allowing students to learn online and interactively communicate with educators.
The ADUT Digitisation Project looked to develop innovative forms of education and improve study programs based on the use of information technologies in modern online study of up to 35 subjects.
The project also includes an educational content management system and a university Wiki for collaboration between teachers and students. It also included digitising articles and processing their content in e-learning form.
The management system allows customised courses and programs to be managed and provides space to university educators for work easily and quickly with educational content. In turn, the Wiki network increases interactivity and facilitates the cooperation between teachers and students, enabling them to share, comment, re-blog and link resources and attachments available within the educational process.
The biggest advantage for students is access to learning material, and hence the possibility of self-paced study from any location and any device that supports Internet access. Students get an overview of their progress in education with interactive tests and immediate feedback, which means they immediately detect the level of their acquired knowledge. This system has a positive impact on continuing education for students. At the same time, this system has a positive impact in making study materials more timely, where instructors have the ability to continuously upgrade educational handouts for students and can also monitor student activity according to the course schedule.
- Improves the quality of education thanks to current and available didactic material
- Improves communication between teachers and students, with students getting feedback in real time
- Ability to innovate study documents and to share, comment and link resources and attachments
„Up to 35 selected subjects are being taught at our university through e-learning, and the school achieves excellent results with this form. We are also working on other projects that are modernising the university infrastructure, improving the quality of teaching to incorporate current trends, and extending the possibilities of scientific-research cooperation at both the European level and global levels.“
