Research & Development in Distance Learning

Our research and development is based on the idea of open, flexible and individual learning. The Swiss Distance Learning University follows the concept of modern distance learning as «Blended Learning», a combination of eLearning and traditional attendance of classes.

Individual learning is complemented by various specific teaching aids. The online learning platform «Moodle» complements the teaching system and allows students to take part in animated discussions with classmates, professors and research assistants.

These activities are implemented by EDUDL+ (Educational Development Unit in Distance Learning). The work group set themselves the primary goal of overseeing the training of educational staff in teaching and research, as well as the education of students. Alongside this important task, EDUDUL also oversees evaluations in education and research, and academic publications based on experiences, expertise etc.
