 Briefly describe your organisation
The Research Centre of the Department of Interactive Media and Educational Technology focuses on the design, realisation and evaluation of didactic arrangements for technology supported learning. In applying an interdisciplinary approach, the department analyses the reflexive interrelations between education, media and society. Its scientific interests strongly relate to ePortfolios, Open Educational Resources, Social Software and Web 2.0. They also include eLearning standards as well as the development of eLearning taxonomies and learner centred design approaches related to eLearning environments.
