Projects of the D²L² Research Cluster
In July 2019 we published a printed report in German that shows at an early stage how the research in D²L² is currently conceived, how concrete scientific goals are formulated in initial projects, and, to some extent how corresponding research has already begun. Please contact the office if you would like us to send you an copy.
This project researches and tests methods for and model applications of artificial intelligence in teaching and learning at the FernUniversität.
The main goal of this project is to investigate the design and use of an adaptive personalized learning environment for (distance) education.
The project deals with the description, prediction, and explanation of diversity effects in computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL). One goal of the project is to develop evidence-based diversity-enriched optimization of CSCL in higher education.
Project “Do I belong?"
The project investigates the consequences of perceived stereotype threat for the social belonging and social relationships of adolescents with migration background in the German school context.
Project “LA DIVA"
The goal of the project is to investigate the potential of Learning Analytics for supporting adaptive learning in distance education, with a particular focus on the diversity of the learners.
The project on "Learning Analytics, Monitoring and Ambition for Study Success in Distance Learning" explores factors for study success and dropout in digital study formats in a mixed-methods approach and draws a direct comparison with traditional face-to-face study.
The research group investigates how learners control exploration and exploitation during interactive multimedia learning.
Project “Stereotype Threat”
Project “Universities of the Future” (HdZ) [completed]
The Universities of the Future project (duration: 1 May 2017 to 30 April 2018) examined the demands of digitalization on universities, their strategic processes, and their politics.
