Techno-pedagogical tools are now essential in the pursuit of ULiège's activities, enriching the course materials, boosting interactivity and ensuring the continuity of teaching when the context no longer allows attendance to be maintained.
Distance learning tools at ULiège
Several techno-pedagogical platforms and resources (reserved access) are offered to the university community to ensure the pursuit of distance learning courses in adapted forms (general courses, courses requiring more interaction with students).
eCampus and Collaborate
The eCampus Student User Guide provides essential information about the eCampus platform.
UniCast and UniCast Live
An online videoconferencing service (Lifesize) is available for students and staff.
The Miro software, mainly used in the project workshops of the Faculty of Architecture, allows teachers to recreate a course context conducive to learning thanks to an interactive whiteboard system.
Special assistance for students is provided:
- The Guidance Étude team provides students with advice to help them familiarise themselves with distance working (access reserved for the ULiège community).
- Students who have further questions about the teaching of a particular programme can contact their Faculty's office.
- In case of computer problems, students can make a request via the form available at: http://sam.student.uliege.be. In case of difficulties with eCampus, a set of videos and tips are available via this link.
- If necessary and under certain conditions, the Student Social Services can intervene financially for the acquisition of computer equipment.
Launched in 2017 and attended since then by more than 120,000 participants, the MOOC's (Massive Open Online Courses), which are free and open to all at the University of Liège, continue to grow.
Interactive and multimedia, incorporating videos, exercises, forums, quizzes and peer reviews, MOOC's - these free courses, designed to be followed entirely at a distance by very large cohorts of participants around the world - are part of a process of maximum democratisation of knowledge.
MOOC's, as an integral part - in whole or in part - of university course curricula, also reinforce the insertion of these new learning materials at the heart of bachelor's and master's degree courses.
