1 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre ODL /e-learning at the University of Miskolc Maria Kocsis Baan University of Miskolc

2 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre CONTENT North-Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre – history of 10 years PHARE network of ODL centres Course development projects Strength and weaknesses Innovative solutions in multilingualism

3 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre From the first steps… PHARE ODL Network – NCPs and ODL Centres born as members of an international network – huge potential, still strong cohesion and collaboration, Active, multi-level collaboration in that period – learning from operable models – both content development (ENVIMAN) and organisational aspects (UFI / LNE). Jumping over some previous development stages, entering the ODL scenario the same time when e-learning nucleated.

4 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre UNIMAN EADTU PHARE Multi-country Programme for DE e-Taster 10 years 28 projects Strategic partnership in ODL networking MinSE European Master in SE & Content development

5 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre Multilingual content development ENVIMAN, Uniphorm Advanced Engineering Innovate E2ngineering e-Taster

6 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre PHARE Multi-country projects Adaptation of an on-line, advanced telematic course Environmental Management accredited postgraduate course, acknowledged by FEANI and SEFI English → HU, SK, PL + content adaptation

7 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre Learning environment of ENVIMAN at Dipoli – First Class client software –videoconference

8 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre Results of ENVIMAN project DEMO Multilingual content, offering gradually decreasing language support, html format, linked to an individual, self-developed portal for info-communication Flexibility and accessability (off- line + printed versions)

9 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre Advanced Engineering multi-purpose competence-course supporting –acquisition and practice of technical English, –parallel with offering highly advanced professional content in different engineering fields. modular structure involving 10 modules, each of 30 hours for learning

10 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre Advanced Engineering Home-made e- learning environment High number of face-to face lessons and lectures

11 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre International On-Line Training in Surface Engineering a new methodology for building up internationally recognised vocational training programs flexible, resource based curriculum design-system testing of three different e-learning frameworks (Learning Space, Sollan and COEDU) –reusability of learning objects, –interoperability of platforms –Innovative solution for multilingualism Edited video-lectures of top-level experts, animations, videod practicals Video-conferencing (Miskolc-Malta)

12 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre 10 partners from 6 countries Contractor: Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining – IOM3 (UK) Professional coordination: International Federation of Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering – IFHTSE Project coordination: University of Miskolc

13 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre Added values in innovative methodological approach: rapid prototyping flexible, resource based curriculum design-system LEGO system: wide variety of courses will be built up from more or less independent, self-standing training units – continuously widened and updated knowledge pool of resource materials, integrated into appropriate LCMS. a new methodology for building up internationally recognised vocational training programs tailored for different target groups and meeting different training needs.

14 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre e2ngineering Development and testing of multilingual e- learning materials and courses in advanced engineering subjects – Leonardo project Complex course of 12 modules in Computer Aided Engineering Languages: HU, EN, SK, RO and PL

15 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre MinSE Developing European Master in Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering 5 universities, IFHTSE, 5 industrial partners (coordinator: Univ. of Malta) Development of 25 modules, each of 4 credits - 7 subjects in ODL, others delivered f2f, by international team of lecturers, in 2 weeks blocks Some of the modules may be offered as self- standing professional development courses as well.

16 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre Common strengths, innovative aspects Resource based approach in course development Developing training materials in modular structure – reusable learning elements, as building blocks of different learning programmes – „LEGO” system: wide variety of courses may be built up from more or less independent, self-standing training units – continuously widened and updated knowledge pool of resource materials, integrated into appropriate LCMS Multilingual delivery of the content – simultaneous language support International networking models

17 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre Common weaknesses: sustainability and joint delivery Institutional stability and sustainability SHOULD guarantee the sustainability of programs and projects – but the fact in many cases is just the reverse: projects guarantee the sustainability of institutional frameworks and their operability Institutional sustainability strongly depends on personal approach of top management – scepticism, poor level of awareness in HEIs – „we have more urgent problems…” Joint development usual, but joint delivery – never beyond the lifetime of the project !!!!

18 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre e-Taster - focused on sustainability and multilingual delivery models -Avoiding compatibility and accreditation problems -No financial issues -LANGUAGE DIVERSITY -Networked models of DELIVERY Short, non-accredited but fully functional on-line courses Free of charge, for general public Multilingual platform(navigation) and multilingual content in languages – switchable at any time! 3 different models of delivery

19 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre Auto-registration Selection of learning mode: Self-study –International (EN+) –Local language+ Tutored group -Local language+ Collaborative (EN+)

20 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre Multilingualism Navigation language : EN, HU, SK, PL, RO, BG, RUS and LT Multilingual content EN, HU, RO, LT, BG, PL, D, F, IT, ES, SK and RUS. Simultaneous access to all language versions, paragraph-by-paragraph System administrator may define the „master” and hidden languages

21 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre 1.e-Learning 2. e-Europe 3. ICT for everybody Courses Languages:

22 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre 4. Multimedia 5. Time management 6. Taste of Europe – Taste of Hungary Courses Highly illustrative content - Video illustrations - Animations - Games - Real-time Virtual music lesson

23 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre 7. Women studies 8. Job interview 9. Job application Courses Personalisation of learning environment: - Highlighting - Note, bookmarks, - Versatile printing options - 3 level of content display - Selection of specific elements

24 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre 10. Project management 11. Project planning 12. Engineering Courses On-line feedback and certification

25 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre Expected long term sustainability Operation of the system beyond the life-time of the project may be expected as tasters are prepared with special care for being self- standing, or will need minimised staff-support. Human resources for tutoring can be solved as –recruited in unusual way, e.g. tutoring of learners groups can be the task of students at related courses, teachers on continuing education programs, etc. –ODL organisations may consider them as valuable marketing and awareness raising tools - worth to keep on operation.

26 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre Rules of the game All taster courses are free for learners, for general public, offered in the languages and in the form, as they are developed by the support of the project. No profit can be generated by selling these courses on-line Access provided via the central, eTaster site, as a guarantee of transparency Third parties may join the initiative, to widen the range of - translated language versions, -languages (beyond the 10 languages), -courses - new content development in the same learning environment

27 Maria Kocsis Baán University of Miskolc, North Hungarian Regional Distance Education Centre Taste our multilingual e-learning environment! 12 short, non-accredited courses in 12 languages FREE for anyone by auto-registration DEMO
