What we do in E-CLIC:

E-CLIC Rogaland was established in 2009. An office for the activities was created and “E-CLIC Entrepreneurship week”, was successfully arranged in October same year. The main focus is to investigate possibilities related to new broadband technologies.

This includes:

  • ”Interactive PDF”: Flash technology embedded into Adobe PDF files, making ordinary PDF documents able to include animations etc.
  • Investigation of distribution by ”iTunes University” and other distribution platforms, including tests of podcasting in e-learning.
  • ”Webcast system ” :Enable lecture caption in classroom integrating video-recording of lectures and powerpoints.
  • ”Archiving old media material”: Media productions and clips from last century being archived for easy reuse by researcher all over the world.
  • Development of a complete bachelor study in nurse education by utilising the mixture of new media.
  • Development of utilising Television production to distribute research result i.e. research “stand-up”- presentations. This is done low cost on the spot, and later shown on Norwegian national television (NRK), and also distributed on “iTunes University”.

The upcoming focus of E-CLIC Rogaland for the 2010-2011 is to merge into entrepreneurship. This includes establishment of revised education structure and cooperation with “Centre for Entrepreneurship” and “Start UiS” (student organisation promoting entrepreneurship). A house on campus is dedicated to entrepreneurship students and related presentations. This also includes agreements with the new “MAGMA geopark” (UNESCO approved, http://www.magmageopark.com ) where students develop plans and productions. The geopark needs new infrastructure, e-learning setup, presentations, etc. Students located at MAGMA will communicate with University/ E-CLIC , “Student entrepreneurship house”, etc. by internet tools
