Project information

A blended learning basic course "Technical Optics 1" is to be created on the Moddle learning platform, which includes elements from the areas of "simulations" and "games" and enables students to engage in self-directed learning with supporting classroom events. Mechanisms such as activity completion, progress indicators, collection of points and time-limited tests to obtain bonus points are intended to ensure that students regularly work on their learning progress and can design and optimally use the self-learning phases according to their personal prerequisites and learning type. Using a mechanism from the field of "games", students should be able to receive the help they need to solve difficult tasks as independently as possible. The game character contributes to the motivation and gives the students immediate feedback.
