Better possibilities for digital teaching, user-friendliness, and easier communication between students and teachers via an app. CBS’ new teaching and learning platform, Canvas, has a lot to offer and will replace Learn this year.
CBS’ diploma program has, as the first full program at CBS, been running a project for the past three years that combines on-campus teaching with various online activities. One of the goals is to attract more students to the program, which has experienced a decreasing number of applicants in recent years.
The start-up, Lix, has made what aspires to be the “Spotify for textbooks”, an online platform from which you can already access more than 70 percent of CBS’ curriculum. Lix wants to revolutionize the textbook with online features such as instant messaging and quizzes. However, the digitalization of textbooks might lead to us learning less, in the end, argues Jakob Ravn, Chief Consultant at CBS.
VR-technology is winning its way into the business and entertainment world, but is it also beneficial for universities? Yes, says former CBS student Simon Borrit and Master in light design Zoltán Tasnádi from Aalborg University. No – not yet, says Jakob Ravn, Chief consultant from CBS.
Having created an increase in efficiency and creativity amongst employers and employees, the question lies in whether silence is also the vital element needed to produce a better learning environment here at CBS. A class of graduate students had a short introduction to the possibilities of silent co-creation.
The traditional educational set-up of a teacher standing in front of a blackboard will be replaced by online courses, board games and silent reflection in a new phenomenon known as ‘blended learning’. CBS aims to implement it by 2022, but students and teachers argue that it can’t come soon enough.
