Educational Video Conference

Portable Video Conferencing Toolkits and Online Applications for Engaging Learning Experience Design in Higher Education Classroom

EdViCon is a three-year (Feb 2022-Jan 2025) Erasmus+ project that aims to research and develop online teaching practices.

Online teaching that can give the same interaction and engagement of a large classroom of mathematics students, designers in a design studio, or freshmen in a physics laboratory requires fundamental rethinking in making the activities possible. We will develop educational materials to facilitate learning for educators, trainers, and students by adopting portable video conferencing systems and pedagogical designs involving online tools. We will also develop a digital competence matrix for categorizing the skills from three different schools of thought (i) the technology-centered view, (ii) a behaviorist view, and (iii) the social interaction view. The questionnaires developed based on the competence matrix will be a personal development tool for reflecting on the skills gaps and mismatches, which can be reduced by learning from the open-access educational materials made for learning the desired knowledge, competencies, and skills.

Three main topics addressed by your projects are:

  • Information and communication technologies (ICT)
  • Digital content, technologies, and practices
  • Digital skills and competencies.
