E-Learning Community Server

Team teaching, intercultural exchange, a wider range of courses... All this and more is offered by the E-Learning Community Server (ECS), which was launched at the beginning of the winter semester 2020/2021.

What is the ECS?

The ECS is a simple technical solution for international and collaborative teaching projects. Via the ECS interface, different Learning Management Systems (LMS) can be connected. Instead of enrolling students from abroad at our university, foreign students can easily access selected ILIAS courses at the university of applied sciences via their own LMS. Teachers can provide free teaching/learning materials for all students (copyrights have to be respected) and students are given the opportunity to collaborate within ILIAS.

 

How can I, as a teacher, get access to the ECS?

The exchange server is currently only available to teachers participating in the project Digital Mobil @ FH Bielefeld. If you are interested or have questions, please contact digitalmobil@fh-bielefeld.de .

 

Where can I find more detailed information?

In the download box you will find the handout of the presentation "Linking Learning Management Systems - Interuniversity course sharing at the touch of a button", which was presented at the DAAD Moving Target Conference 2020. In the presentation you will also find links to demo videos that illustrate how the technical data exchange works.

 

ECS in numbers

For the winter semester 2020/2021, 3 partner universities have been connected to the ECS: TDU Istanbul (Turkey), Shota Meskhia State Teaching University of Zugdidi (Georgia), and the University of Alberta (Canada).
For the summer semester of 2021, 3 more universities have been added: Yaroslav-the-Wise Novgorod State University (Russia), St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences (Austria), and Istanbul Kent University (Turkey).
So far, 194 students and teachers of the partner universities have accessed our ILIAS (September 2021). Further partners will be connected semester by semester.
