Forschungszentrum L3S - KoALA
The aim of the KoALA project is to develop net based strategies of teaching and learning for a permanent qualification of teachers and trainees. For this, didactically edited information and learning materials are provided in a way that they can be used cooperatively by teachers and apprentices for situational supported self qualification processes. The teacher has thus the possibility to improve his knowledge together with the trainee during the actual course of studies (“learning by teaching”). A crucial advantage of this strategy is that the teacher is released from the medium of expert knowledge and concentrates more on the tasks of a learning adjuster, moderator and advisor, and also on the special support of weak trainees.

Forschungszentrum L3S - CoData
Scientific primary data here means: primary data coupled with its bibliographical description (metadata). In principle, scientists are prepared to provide data, but for the time being it is unusual to appreciate the necessary extra work for processing, context documentation and quality assurance. The classical mode of distributing scientific results is their publication in professional journals. These articles in magazines are recorded in the "citation index". The index is used for a performance evaluation of scientists. Data publications have not been taken into account until now. The working hypothesis is a "Scientific and Thechnical Data-DOI" in the responsibility of science. Organising primary data DOI in the field of science allows e.g. access rules without commercial background. The copyright might remain with data producers.

L3S - iLabs

L3S - MoRob
In recent years, autonomous mobile robots have developed into a very popular topic with high visibility in media like television, newspapers and the internet. Their use in research, entertainment and industrial applications is constantly rising. Going along with this development is an increasing number of robotics courses offered at universities, as well as dissertation projects in this area. At the same time, robots offer an excellent tool for teaching a number of different disciplines. Robotics is an interdisciplinary topic involving components from mechanical, electrical, control, and computer engineering. A key component of robotics is the need to integrate these disciplines in order to construct systems. Consequently robotics offers an excellent basis for teaching individual disciplines as well as their integration into systems.
