Another step towards a virtual university in construction IT
Danijel Rebolj, Karsten Menzel, 2004, original scientific article

Abstract: Nine universities started a project in autumn 2001 with the aim to develop an interuniversity postgraduate program in Construction Information Technology. The program is intended to be offered to students on most of the partner universities. On some of them it should start already in the academic year 2003/2004. The students will attend the subjects in different ways: face-to-face at home universities, face-to-face at partner universities, as well as by means of open and distant learning. The program has been developed with the purpose that students will not only get the best subjects the partneruniversities can offer in this specific area, but will also get the very important experience of other universities, countries and cultures, as well as of using IT in the learning and working process. Some partner universities, like University of Salford, already offer programmes in open distant learning mode. To extend the experiences and to try more, mostly videoconferencing technologies, TU Dresden and University of Maribor joint twoclasses of students in the early 2003 and run a 30 hour seminar on "Mobile Computing in Construction." Valuable observations have been taken, which were then used to conceptualize an ideal distant learning environment. The paper describes the background, the teaching experiment itself, the observations made, and the specification of an integral distant learning environment, as a framework of a future Virtual University in Construction IT.

Interuniversity postgraduate program in construction IT
Fátima Farinha, Ricardo Gonçalves, Danijel Rebolj, Karsten Menzel, 2003, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: This paper reports on an interuniversity collaboration, funded by Erasmus Program, which develops a European Master course in Construction Information Technology (ITC) to complement the existing portfolio of postgraduate programsand to meet the growing demand for such skills in the construction industry all over the world. The curriculum is defined in a way that courses will be offered from different universities in Europe, as face-to-face education as well as long distance learning courses, which will give students the possibility not just to study in other countries, but also to tailor the program to their own needs and wishes. Students will not only get the best subjects but will also get the very important experience of different universities and cultures as well as of using information technology (IT) in the learning process. The paper concludes presenting and discussing ITC@EDU network, which main purpose is to support and link together teachers in the area of IT in construction. Therefore, the significance of the work done exceeds the postgraduate program, as it has become the linking point for the further development of ITC education globally.
