FernUniversität Hagen. Centre of Distance Study Development, Germany
The German Fern Universität at Hagen has developed more than 1,600 courses for tertiary education at the graduate and postgraduate levels. The university is a public state university with study centres located all over Germany as well as at neighbouring countries such as Austria,
Switzerland and the Czech Republic. Historically, teaching was delivered by printed modules and supplemented by some obligatory face-to-face meetings. As the university is now committed to become a virtual university, numerous courses are now being converted to Web-based learning materials. In doing so, the hyperlinks and multimedia enrichments are being added to the existing course materials to take advantage of software facilities such as Macromedia Flash and Java programming. In this paper, such an endeavour is presented illustrating in particular the efficient way of conversion that has resulted in attractive Web-based multimedia course materials. Thedevelopment of the university electronic portals will also be outlined and the mechanisms of imbedding these Web-courses into such a system is highlighted.
