Faculty 3: Civil Engineering
Faculty-Wide Initiative to Promote Open Education Resources – OER
The Faculty of Civil Engineering launched an OER initiative, consisting of a YouTube channel on which short videos on selected research projects and teaching content are regularly published under a CC 4.0 BY licence. This initiative which was started in 2016 during the first phase of the digitalization strategy aims to create more acceptance for open educational resources by providing relevant, high quality content.
The videos cover a broad spectrum of civil engineering disciplines and are accompanied by English text explanations. They range, for example, from small basic experiments in the field of water management to complex research projects in structural concrete. The conception and production of the videos is done in cooperation between scientific members of the respective institutes and the video studio team of the faculty, located in Lehr- und Forschungsgebiet Ingenieurhydrologie.
