Implementation of E-learning in an Electrical Engineering Study Program - Infrastructure, Experiences, and Lessons Learned
Keywords:electrical engineering, study program, e-learning development process, instructors’ perspective, lessons learned, e-learning strategies
This paper reports on the development of e-learning material for a blended-learning part-time study program in electrical engineering and information technology. It is focused on the entire process of creation, from the perspective of instructors and higher education professionals supporting the production. In the design of the program, the development of effective study material including e-learning content for the target group was one of the main objectives. Associated with the development of this material, various challenges had to be overcome. In the following, we describe the development and implementation process of the material using results from a survey among lecturers who were contributing e-learning to the program. Different manifestations of e-learning are discussed, and the whole process of production is reviewed. In the current efforts for digitizing higher education in Europe, the findings may be relevant for universities’ e-learning strategies.
