ECMI Special Interest Group (SIG) Net Campus for Modeling Education and Industrial Mathematics

Period: Jan 01, 2016 - Oct 27, 2020
Status: laufend

The ECMI educational committee has taken virtual education and web-supported solutions as one of its target areas to complement the other strategic areas like ECMI curriculum development, modeling weeks, mobility of students & staff etc.

The cutting edge knowledge in industrial mathematics is dispersed at small nodes of expertise. Online environments are a viable media to access this knowledge and support innovative processes, training and educational needs, to facilitate distributed consultation processes, etc. The evolution from textbook to interactive cross media environments means a new learning paradigm. Advantages include easy access and portability, flexible updates, dynamic edition, multi/hypermedia tools from search facilities, quizstructures to animations, interactive exercises, remote lectures and videoconference etc.

We envisage to build a European digital environment and webportal for applied and industrial mathematics. More immediate goal is to share information and experience, describe examples of web based courses in applied mathematics and technologies for web publication of interactive documents. Such environment are suitable for students in applied mathematics and engineering programs in advanced BS and MS level as well as for persons who are already in their working life and are looking for continuing education and professional development. The courses should be based on customized content for a special applications area.
