A5. Creating Interactive Learning Content to Support your Courses


MODULE OPEN TO RCFE NETWORK (see information under registration fees)

With interactive, software-based content, you can expand the self-study parts of your courses in an exciting and motivating way. In addition, interactive learning content is an excellent tool for preparing heterogeneous profiles of students with regard to their prior knowledge in a study program.

In this module, you will dive into the topic of interactive software-based learning content creation and its adapted use in the didactic process of any subject matter.

We will start with an introduction to a descriptive framework helping to identify and classify tools, which can be used to create interactive software-based content. Further, we will discuss what are the advantages and dangers associated with the use of such tools. Next, we will use a tool (like e.g. Moodle, Jupyter Notebook, GitHub/GitLab) to create interactive learning content for a concrete showcase, potentially based on the input of a participant.

Remark: No technical prior knowledge is required to take part in this module. As we focus on the proper integration of the presented tools in the pedagogic teacher-student-content triangle, also participants from non-technical fields will benefit from the module
