Abstract:
Teaching is an integral part of our work at university and we strive to achieve a high quality in teaching our students. Yet, we face classes with up to 800 students per semester and do not have the resources to ensure a close rapport with each and every one of them. For the last 6 years we have been working on an online solution for this problem, with the aim of letting students take responsibility of a large part of their own learning process. The e-learning system Aurora envelops a number of components ranging from organizational and informational tools to discussion systems and student portfolios. Students are invited to participate actively in this online learning environment and are presented with a variety of options they can choose from in order to accumulate enough credits to pass their courses. Over the years of developing Aurora, issues and inadequacies of the system became apparent and lead us to change our system design iteratively, learning from its shortcomings.
