Abstract

Lately, in particular podcast and web 2.0 technologies like wikis, blogs or social networks (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Delicious etc.) have been promoted as the new learning technologies which can honor the great expectations that still exist for ICT to revolutionize teaching. But even though the last decade has shown lots of experiments with online learning technologies within higher education, these often seem isolated and have not changed every day teaching fundamentally. In this paper we will present ideas, design and experiences from a project which aims to optimize course development with the use of ICT-tools. Our results point to the positive effect of integrating online learning technologies like podcast, wiki and blogs in course teaching, but only as a result of a grander rethinking and redesign of the entire course.
