10 Cost benefit analysis for optimal resource assignment in educational institutions - reducing of bottlenecks
Concepts of Groupware-based Information Management in Higher Education Institutions - What are the Challenges?
1 ORG & MANAGEMENT Options of the groupware paradigm and CSCW in organizations, and its radiation to higher education
2 PRODUCTIVITY Lotus Notes as CSCW-platform for information management
3 Knowledge management on campus and connectivity to the outside world
4 Teaching process management
5 Quantity steps in groupware-based knowledge networks as compared to a current paper-based world
6 Quality as a joint result of integrating teachers and students in an interactive environment
7 The multimedia options: computers handle "natural"-datatypes
8 The never-ending story of knowledge-workflow adaptation
9 The real cost are not around hardware or software
Groupware-based Solutions after 3-Years of Experience UniTeach 2000, Phase 1 - How it works!
1 EDUCATION Groupware and Education Process Re-design
1.2 The "think-big, start-small" challenge
1.3 Teaching process support: preparation and management of classes, content management of lectures and seminars, electronic lecture note dissemination, how to avoid media-breaks in teaching and presentation materials
1.4 Groupware-based homework management and the virtual classroom
1.5 Thesis management: preparation, writing process support, content clearing, archiving; the thesis is a multimedia supporting electronic document: where are the paper books?
1.6 Status of the UniTeach 2000 project after two years of groupware infrastructure setup: start of the distance learning concept in two classes 93/94
2 ADMIN Groupware and Administration
2.1 Office: team-based correspondence management, scanning, archiving
2.2 Managing the examination processes: preparing written examinations, allocating marks in a distributed team environment
2.3 kiosk Managing research projects: application design process, project definition, comprehensive management of schedules and content
3 RESEARCH Groupware and Research, Projects
KNOW HOW Know-how management and dissemination: wisdom in distributed and hypertext-linked replicating databases; the public is consuming as well as contributing to the university knowledge-base; the open campus
Cash flow analysis
Next steps: Groupware-based Solutions
1 Next steps in the UniTeach 2000 project: tap the knowledge in the classroom (equipping ordinary classrooms with transceivers for the campus-LAN for student notebooks)
2 Distance learning at high-speed (sponsoring ISDN-equipment for selected groups of student at home) - Preparing the virtual classroom
2 Discussion and reiteration of specific information management areas in higher education institutions
