iCamp: Innovative, inclusive, interactive & intercultural learning campus


IST-2004-027168, EUR 2,700,000 (Leicester: EUR 380,000)


October 2005 - December 2008

iCamp (innovative, inclusive, interactive and intercultural learning campus) pursues the idea of bringing people together within a common virtual learning environment: an environment that does not consist of a single software system, but is composed of various interoperable tools and platforms; an environment that does not stop at conventional boundaries, but facilitates multidisciplinary co-operation and networking in an enlarged Europe; an environment that does not only deliver learning experiences, but scaffolds for self-directed learning, catalyses social networking, and fosters cross-cultural collaboration. iCamp is a research project targeting higher education in the enlarged European Union. Its aim is to research, develop and validate a distributed infrastructure for learning solutions - the iCamp space - compliant with a pedagogical model built upon a social-constructivist approach. iCamp validates its pedagogical model against its interoperable system and tools portfolio - the iCamp building blocks. The efforts result in guidelines on pedagogical and technical issues as well as in an open-source software package of constructivist learning tools.
