The acceptance of digitally supported teaching has increased considerably in recent years. At the same time, however, the demands on availability, usability, and granularity of the offerings are also increasing. Especially in the study of STEM subjects, the combination of theoretically taught basics and
their application and consolidation in the form of internships in the basic subjects is unfavorable in terms of time, as these are usually subject to a tight time schedule and do not provide opportunities for individual learning processes either
in terms of space or time. The EIFEL project aims to develop and test the basis for the digital support of learning processes in computer science within the framework of a fellowship. On the one hand, this will allow new forms of
teaching such as flipped classroom, problem-based learning with the help of virtual and remote-controlled laboratory experiments, and on the other hand, individual practice-oriented learning through flexible access to experiments in
terms of time and place. It is one of eight projects supported by the Thuringian Ministry of Economics, Science and Digital Society and the German Stifterverband.
