Blended learning in higher education
Information System courses has for decades contained various aspects of blended learning. Distance education started in the 70's and now more is a whole undergraduate at distance. In both distance courses and campus courses, various forms of media support are being used.
At Information Systems, we have for several years worked strategically to increase the proportion of blended learning - activities by online features on campus courses, access to campus-based features at a distance and even joint classes between campus and distance courses. For this used eg techniques like itslearning as a learning platform, video recorded lectures, Skype and Adobe Connect for tutorials and seminars.
In 2015, the project is 'Flexible Case tasks.: Blended learning from instruction to examination' - a course development project that aims to investigate how digital methods and techniques can be used to further develop courses both on campus at a distance. The goal is to raise the quality of teaching and student learning, and use of resources. The focus of the project is thus to design, test and evaluate various learning activities by integrating synchronous and asynchronous forms of teaching. Examples of such learning activities are reality-based case, flipped classroom, video blogs and video-recorded material in combination with tutorials, seminars and lectures.
