New Breed of Computer Supported Student Contests. Learning by and for Tele-Collaboration

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Information and communication technology provides a means for changing teaching methodologies, and at the same time creates a need for learning some new skills and knowledge. In this paper a generalisation and modification of a concept, which has recently been suggested for engineering design, is discussed. The uniqueness of the proposed new breed of computer supported student contests arises from assessing tele-collaboration as part of the competition scoring. Recent web based contests are observed indicating that some early birds of the new breed may already exists. In addition to outlining the suggested generic methodology and some of its’ pedagogical and computer supported aspects, initial research activities towards scientific assessment of students’ tele-collaboration are reported. It is concluded that the concept presented here provides not only new education alternatives, but also some research possibilities in areas such as sociology, education, and engineering.
