A Sustainable Learning Environment based on an Open Source Content Management System
In: Proceedings of the German e-Science Conference (GES 2007), edited by Wilhelm Bühler. Max-Planck-Gesellschaft.
This paper presents our approach for supporting face-to-face courses with software components for e-learning based on a general-purpose content management system (CMS). These components—collectively named eduComponents—can be combined with other modules to create tailor-made, sustainable learning environments, which help to make teaching and learning more efficient and effective. We give a short overview of these components, and we report on our practical experiences with the software in our courses.
