The Faculty of Architecture and Regional Planning began developing a virtual campus in 2001 as part of a faculty project named Modulor in the framework of the Austrian government’s New Media in Education initiative (NML - Neue Medien in der Lehre). The Modulor project, which was funded for three years through a grant from the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, aimed at employing new media technologies to effectively support the faculty’s teaching, research, and administrative work. After the grant funding phase of the project was completed, the faculty continued supporting development work on this initiative under the title Virtual Campus (ViC).
We offer accompanying user support in applying the available new information and communication technologies, as well as a number of workflow guides. We are also glad to be of service in helping you implement your own new media projects and ideas.
Our core fields of activity:
- Training sessions and manuals for the Virtual Campus tools and resources (arteFact, BSCW, iRecord, Mediabase, Tuwel …) for students and instructors. Please contact us for details.
- Technical maintenance, installation, and update work.
- Coordination and integration of new developments with existing systems, for example student projects
- Support and information about potential applications of new information and communication technologies.
- Information about the value and significance of new information and communication technologies in higher education.
- Support and further development of the homepage: ar.tuwien.ac.at
Articles to the editorial office: feedback(a)ar.tuwien.ac.at
The web content is created and continually updated by the departments through the faculty’s media database.
iRecord is an online documentation system for submitting student projects and is used in connection with design studios, baccalaureate and master theses, as well as exhibitions. After final review through the appointed instructors, the project documents are registered in the faculty’s media database.
Mediabase is the faculty’s online media database, which allows different user groups (visitors, students, and staff) access to its extensive data collections. It contains data about people and organisations, buildings, projects, and designs that are linked to pictures, documents, audiovisual media, and bibliographic references to build a richly interconnected information network.
