eLearning, “Learning Organisation”,
In collaboration with our partners of the Johannes-Kepler University of Linz and the Pädagogisches Institut Bozen we work on research projects in the area of eLearning and Knowledge Management
The main focus lies in the development of software capable of organizing learning content according the principle of constructivism
. This learning theory is based on the idea that the learner creates an individual representation
of the world during the learning process. Every learner “constructs” his own pool of experience. The knowledge is conveyed through innovative eLearning applications. Professors and lecturers take the role of consultants in the learning process.
The same principle apply to the Learning Organization. This area has been and still is the main focus of the research at the ICT
. Already in 2006 first attempts to integrate support tools for Blended Learning
into organization processes were made. The proper management of the existing knowledge owned by the organization enables a continuous and needs-based qualification of the collaborator.
Blended learning guaranties a constructive mix of knowledge acquisition online and in the field. The learning collaborator is offered a collaborative qualification independent of time and space
. The adoption of this qualification method ignites an optimization process inside the organization.
Thanks to the applied, written, studied and collaboratively discussed organization-owned know how (e.g. processes) it is possible to construct an optimized and refined knowledge base
, the most important asset in an information and service oriented society.
