Every European University is concerned with strategies aiming at the integration of information and communication technology in teaching. Using the potentials of the web for academic teaching consistently and comprehensive on distance online study programmes, that are still integrated in the regular university business and match with the Bologna process and the Lisbon strategy, is unique. Since 1997, oncampus has developed towards a precursor on the development and implementation of full online study programmes and courses in continuing education.
The key to our success is our continuous focus on the needs of learners - technically, didactically and always oriented on the needs of the labour market.
Important lifeline within those aims of oncampus is also the collaboration in strong national and international networks.
The integrated e-learning producation process can be described as the core of oncampus. It results in high professional online course material. All e-learning modules provide special didactical opportunities and flexibility due to their technological consistence. The e-learning modules are produced under use of the specific oncampus authoring tool "oncampus-factory". All course material is applicable in any Learning Management System (LMS). oncampus provides SAKAI (open source), Blackboard, Luvit and Moodle (open source).
Online study programmes require sophisticated software tools aiming at a professional course management. Regarding this oncampus has developed a distinct administration software "oncampus-portal" which is especially tailored for the specific mangement needs of online distance study programmes.
E-Learning Project Development
To maintain the position of a key player in online distance study programmes, it is essential for oncampus to gain start-up finance for innovations via grants. Not only technical modifications and developments come in the fore of respective proposals. Our competitiveness is likewise ensured by continuous innovations in the e-learning programmes using didactical developments, participating in common projects with new partners from all over the world, or realising new courses focused on the needs of the labour market.
Especially on grounds of the oncampus lead partnership in the flagship projects "Virtual University of Applied Sciences" and "Baltic Sea Virtual Campus" the oncampus department of Lübeck University of Applied Sciences benefits from longtime experience in national and international project management.
