e-Learning

eLearning allows for interactive and multimedia-based teaching that can be incorporated into student-oriented didactic concepts. Furthermore, eLearning is about making good use of technology for learning and teaching. Internet and communication technologies are employed in a secure, protected manner at MCI. Among other things, the Sakai learning management system facilitates organized, targeted teaching and learning that promotes a modern, interactive and vibrant university culture.

The individual further training measures complement each other and deal with the planning, implementation, assessment and evaluation of eLearning services. The practical application of various tools is another equally important element of eLearning. Individual measures in the eLearning module can be reserved as classroom and / or online modules.
