Ministry of Education Promotes Video-based Learning

As part of “High-Tech Strategy 2025” (HTS 2025), the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is providing 3.7 million euros to support the “Student Crowd Research” interdisciplinary research project.

This project is a digital educational space that facilitates students’ collaborative and investigative learning. Innovative video technologies are an integral part of the project. Thus far, the majority of German universities use video as a medium for visualization of learning contents: students can view contents, but remain passive spectators. “Student Crowd Research”, on the other hand, aims to utilize video technologies as learning tools.

Prof. Dr. Andreas Hebbel-Seeger from Macromedia University is responsible for this area, which is a cornerstone of “Student Crowd Research”. Only when innovative video technologies are combined with interactive formats and self-evaluative instruments can a significantly greater number of students participate in forms of learning that have traditionally demanded intensive mentorship, e.g. student research projects.
