Research at the Faculty of Computer Science & Business Information Systems
The following research institutions are located at the Faculty of Computer Science and Business Information Systems:
Institute for Computers in Education
ICe – Institute for Computers in education
The research institute ICe addresses mainly the use of new media for teaching and electronically-enhanced learning (e-learning).
- computer-aided teaching and learning, virtual worlds
- use of computer in education
- service management in education
Institute for Learning and Innovation in Networks
ILIN – Institute for Learning and Innovation in Networks
The Institut für Lernen und Innovation in Netzwerken (ILIN) aims at bringing together the fields of Networked Innovation and Manufacturing and the more technology-oriented Networked Learning, Knowledge and Competence Development, which become increasingly important in the age of globalisation and global and local networking.
- networked innovation and manufacturing
- networked learning, knowledge and competence development
