Abstract

The Virtual University is an Internet-based learning environment developed at the University of Hagen that includes all aspects of a university. The project is experimenting with and evaluating different forms of teaching and learning. A new form of teaching is the virtual practical training. Our experiences show that the virtual practical training is leading towards a major quality improvement in distance education. All sorts of learning activities passive-receptive as well as active-expressive are part of the practical. Distributed teamwork and problem-solving hands-on activities were successfully integrated into this highly communicative teaching event.
