How to find us

House of Compentence (HoC)

The Center for Technology-Enhanced Learning (ZML) is a scientific institution within the House of Competence (German).

Welcome to the Center for Technology-Enhanced Learning

We are convinced that technology-enhanced learning provides the basis for flexible, cooperative, digitally-supported and research-oriented learning and teaching – whether in the context of university studies, higher academic education or advanced training for teachers.

The Center for Technology-Enhanced Learning (ZML) is the central point of contact within KIT for the conceptual design, development, implementation and evaluation of online and blended-learning programs. As a provider of education, we develop technology-based teaching and learning solutions that are accessible anytime and anywhere, thus addressing teachers and students across a wide range of educational contexts. By means of specifically tailored e-learning services, we provide advice and support with regards to the implementation of media-enhanced teaching formats, such as MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). As a project partner, we rely on our long-standing expertise in the field of e-learning, with a particular focus on the topic of energy. We invite you to learn more about our offers and services!

 

Offers and Competencies

 
ZML as a Project Partner

Digital Learning

ZML provides information and advice on the digital preparation of learning content and is a competent partner for the conceptual design, development, organization and implementation of blended-learning or e-learning applications. Additionally, ZML offers KIT teaching staff the possibility to record their lectures to provide students more possibilities to learn. Especially students with disabilities rely on barrier-free educational offerings such as recordings of lectures. With its digital learning services, ZML offers guidance and support to all members of KIT. If you want to learn more about our e-learning services, please contact Sarah Holstein.

Lecture Translator

The lecture translator is a service provided by ZML which translates lectures simultaneously and enables international students to follow the content in real-time. It works similar to subtitles of movies and is free of charge. Teaching staff must simply book the lecture translator at least one week in advance, inform us about the time and place of the session and use the microphone provided in the lecture hall. Students can then easily follow the live-translation via their laptop or smartphone. If you have any further questions, please contact Andreas Sexauer for support and booking regarding the lecture translator.

Technology-Enhanced Science Outreach

“Technology-enhanced science outreach” is a package of services we built for scientists. Our services help researchers to persist in front of colleagues and the public. We explain complex science vividly for different target groups. With a multimodal and interdisciplinary approach, we teach you how to edit and share your content using modern media, such as video or animation. If you are interested in our services, please don’t hesitate to contact Christian Wetzel. We will gladly develop an appropriate concept and make you an offer for your project!

MediaLab

Our MediaLab is an offer for all KIT students. We focus on successful learning in a digitalized world. Therefore, we have developed a range of offers for you to improve your digital competence:

  • Research about media-pedagogy and media didactics In our research we focus on academic digital media competency and media for digital learning, our results are evaluated and executed directly at ZML. We welcome seminar, Bachelor and Master theses in the field of media-pedagogy or media didactics with a focus on digitalization. Please contact us for further information!
  • Advice for a successful implementation of digital tools for learning Building a network with students and giving you advice on how to use digital tools for learning during your studies is very important to us.

Science Camps

Another target group of ours are teenagers and pupils. From an early age on we want to excite pupils about research and science, give them a behind-the-scenes look into the daily working life at a university and convey the possibilities of medial learning. Therefore, we offer different summer camps called Science Camps and a Science Exchange Program between Shanghai and Karlsruhe. In our Science Camps students age 14-16 can experiment on their own about energy, climate, geoscience and informatics. Additionally, they learn to use digital media and for example produce a video or e-book. The Science Exchange Program offers high school students age 18+ the chance to not only experiment and learn about science but also to get to know China and its culture. If you have any further questions regarding our pupil activities or the Science Camps, please contact Michael Gauss.
