E-learning environment – CECnet

An integral part of the continuing education programs is the attractive e-learning environment known as CECnet. Here participants will find, in particular, information and documents relating to the relevant programs and the individual courses. The online learning environment is based on the learning management system Moodle and allows participants to enjoy interactive communication with other students via discussion fora. Handover of home assignments is also undertaken via the CECnet, as is the evaluation of courses.

Digital study – Apple iPads

At the start of the 2012 Winter Semester, the Continuing Education Center of the Vienna University of Technology became the first university in the German-speaking world to provide students on a number of its postgraduate Masters programs with Apple iPads. All the study materials required by program participants are made available digitally via the CECnet learning platform. Not only can the materials be downloaded; they are also accessible online at any time from anywhere in the world. Amendments and additions to scripts and study notes can also be made digitally via the iPad. The result is a study environment which is completely paper-free. “The introduction of Apple iPads was a fantastic surprise for all of us! After just one week’s use, I found I simply couldn’t do without it,” was how Miriam Krinner from Germany (MSc Environmental Technology and International Affairs student) summed up the initiative. Thanks to its resounding success with students, use of this learning medium is set to be extended further.
