The LearnTechNet (LTN) at the University of Basel is a network based on partnership – it links academic services and central institutions of the University who offer various IT services for studies and teaching. The management of the LTN reports to the Vice President's Office for Education (Vizerektorat Lehre).
The Educational Technologies Unit (Bereich Bildungstechnologien), as part of the Department for Teaching and Learning, is the contact for the development of teaching and the use of media in teaching (media didactics).
The New Media Center (NMC) implements media for teaching, learning and the transfer of knowledge.
The IT Services (ITS) provide information and communication technology (ICT) services for research, teaching, studies and administration.
The University Library continuously expands access to scientific information using new media, by making internal and external information available electronically.
The Student Services are responsible for the student life cycle management.
Think Tank and Coordination
The objective of the LearnTechNet is to provide technologies in consultation with students and teachers for the University of Basel, to develop sustainable solutions and to ensure their quality. The purpose of this is to create a coordinated and integrated virtual environment and to facilitate diversified learning formats and teaching methods.
To this end, the LearnTechNet partners develop common positions and university-wide recommendations. New developments are tracked and evaluated using a structured trendspotting process. The tool portfolio is coordinated and interfaces are created.
The network partners coordinate their respective operational work, and jointly launch projects of all or individual partner institutions, e.g. to create new tools, IT-based teaching/learning environments and digital teaching/learning opportunities.
