2 Introduction Subject: An Innovative e-learning system for the dynamically adaptable education of engineersWhy? Need for dynamical adaptation of engineers syllabus because technology changes rapidly Market lacks systems that provide online operation and collaboration of the Instructors Team that dynamically reforms the syllabus E-Learning Design Including Dynamical Syllabus Adaptation Functions Net Media Lab of N.C.S.R. Demokritos

3 Pilot Implementation E-Learning Design Including Dynamical Syllabus Adaptation Functions Net Media Lab of N.C.S.R. Demokritos Project financed by the National Operational Program Education & Initial Vocational Training (2000 – 2006) (O.P. Education) of the Hellenic Ministry of Education, in the Framework of Innovative Pilot Projects for Education Implementation in 3 schools in the 3 largest cities of Greece (Athens, Salonika & Patrai) for Engineering Education Training of Engineers in Automation Control Systems System supported by Net Media Lab of N.C.S.R. Demokritos

4 Requirements In order to achieve the: Reformation & upgrade of the engineers syllabus Continuous feeding of syllabus based on the technology evolution & the special needs of contemporary society The following tasks must be undertaken: Dynamical Adaptation of Syllabus Formation of an Educative Team E-Learning Design Including Dynamical Syllabus Adaptation Functions Net Media Lab of N.C.S.R. Demokritos

5 Dynamical Adaptation of Syllabus E-Learning Design Including Dynamical Syllabus Adaptation Functions Net Media Lab of N.C.S.R. Demokritos Large Number of Technologies & Products are rendered obsolete even within the course of a year due to rapid technological developments & new products & technologies enter the marketHence: Need to dynamically reform and adapt the syllabus to contemporary technological developments through an innovative method becomes apparent & indispensable

6 Dynamical Adaptation of Syllabus 2 E-Learning Design Including Dynamical Syllabus Adaptation Functions Net Media Lab of N.C.S.R. Demokritos Dynamical Adaptation of Syllabus means: A%75A% (75%) of Syllabus remains Static. It represents basic theory knowledge & indispensable cognitive background B%25B% (25%) of Syllabus is Dynamically Reformed. It represents cognitive material that will be reformed according to technological developments (incorporation of up to date cognitive material)

7 Formation of an Educative Team Need for the Formation of a Team of Instructors that will be: Geographically allocated within Hellenic Boundaries Comprised of Engineering Professors & Industry & Manufacturers Representatives Responsible for modelling and reforming the engineers syllabus E-Learning Design Including Dynamical Syllabus Adaptation Functions Net Media Lab of N.C.S.R. Demokritos

8 Formation of an Educative Team 2 With this context the following tasks were undertaken: Creation of a Forum composed of Instructors- Experts & Members of Scientific Institutions for the conveyance of knowledge & know-how Collaboration between the Team of Instructors, the Industry & the Scientific Institutions through the Forum for the up to date informing of new products & technologies E-Learning Design Including Dynamical Syllabus Adaptation Functions Net Media Lab of N.C.S.R.

13 Instructors Level Diagram E-Learning Design Including Dynamical Syllabus Adaptation Functions Net Media Lab of N.C.S.R. Demokritos There are 2 kinds of Instructors: Instructor – Author Instructor – Author who is a member of the Instructors Team & is responsible for the dynamical adaptation & reformation of the syllabus Instructor – Teacher Instructor – Teacher who is only responsible for the teaching of the courses

15 Conclusions Benefits of Dynamical Adaptation Functions Upgrade of Cognitive Standard for both Instructors & Students due to up to date cognitive material and knowledge, Upgrade of students skills due to the up to date knowledge which render them competitive members of engineering society & market field Upgrade of Instructors role in the education society as they become molders of the educative program by actively participating in the modelling of the syllabus Drastic change of social role and operation framework of schools with an overall improvement of the educative results E-Learning Design Including Dynamical Syllabus Adaptation Functions Net Media Lab of N.C.S.R.
