The Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, is deploying a flexible learning scheme for selected pilot courses in engineering education. In such a scheme, traditional lectures and written exercises are combined with additional Web-based learning resources. The main objective of this initiative is to sustain the evolution from(More)
This paper presents an innovative approach for sustaining the continuity of interaction in Web-based experimentation for engineering education. The approach is based on our work in Activity Theory and the CSCL’s shared artifacts concept. The theory is applied to the eJournal, the collaboration component within the Cockpit, a Web-based environment proposed(More)
Convinced by the important role of CoPs (communities of practice) and the innovative learning modality they offer, the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne is currently developing a framework to sustain interaction, collaboration, and learning in laboratory-oriented CoPs, namely the eLogBook. This paper describes the services provided by this framework,(More)
In the last few years, the WWW has frequently been used in a variety of applications, to provide up-to-date and platform-independent access to relevant information. In medicine, building and sharing knowledge about new theories, technologies and discoveries is of major concern. In this respect, there is a real need for physicians to be provided with(More)
The École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is currently using a Web-based experimentation environment to support laboratory activities in engineering education. The key service for the acceptance of the learning modalities and the appropriation of the environment by the students is a shared electronic notebook called the eJournal. This service is(More)
The eLogbook is a collaborative Web-based environment deployed by Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). It consists of an activity-oriented space where a community of educators, teaching assistants and students can form groups, conduct activities and perform several actions over stored and shared assets. Moreover, the eLogbook offers(More)
The World Wide Web has recently evolved from an information distribution tool to a virtual communication space and a cooperative work environment. The paper describes a prototype developed for educational purposes aimed at providing a Web based teaching environment in the context of the MEDIT (Multimedia Environment for Distributed Interactive Teaching)(More)
This paper presents a Web-based collaboration framework designed for sustaining laboratory-oriented activities carried out within academic communities of practice. This framework relies on a Web-based collaboration environment designed as an electronic notebook; such journaling resources being commonly used in laboratory activities for collecting data and(More)
MEDIT is a research project that deals with the development of a Web-based environment for various pedagogical issues. Its primary scope is to ooer complementary support to all actors involved, and not substitute traditional practices. Our approach distinguishes a set of virtual workspaces and provides the appropriate services for each of them. In addition(More)
