This Special Interest Group aims to support members from the Swiss E-Learning Community to implement MOOCs at their institution.
The aim of the SIG E-Portfolio is to determine the usage of e-portfolio elaborating pedagogical recommendations and defining if there is a common need for a national instance of an e-portfolio that would among other features cover lifelong storage. In order to do so, the SIG launched a survey to identify e-portfolio practices and needs and since then organizes workshops to focus on pedagogical and technological aspects.
Videos are increasingly present in the higher education teaching landscape. But it is difficult, both for higher education teachers and e-learning centres, to know what questions need to be addressed even before starting to plan a video project. These questions essentially cover the aspect of "planning the plan", where a vision for the role of video in higher education, as well as the related constraints are to be identified, developed or at least taken into account. Furthermore, it is difficult for people starting to produce video sequences, to find information and help for every stage of their projects.
This SIG on Open Educational Ressources (OER) is intended for people who deal with the conceptional and practical aspects of creating, sharing and re-using OER.

The Swiss Academic Moodle Community (SAMoo) was created in June 2010 to serve as a platform for Swiss Universities to exchange knowledge and best practices in didactic and technical fields related to Moodle. We will start new projects and coordinate activities together. SAMoo is organized as an informal community and aimed at e-learning support center leaders of Swiss Universities.
The SIG Mobile Learning connects actors who innovate education and learning through the use of mobile and ubiquitous technologies in formal, non-formal and informal settings. Through this the SIG Mobile Learning increases the visibility for novel educational concepts for mobile learning and for the relevance for organizational practice. Further, the SIG activities will support the impact and the uptake of mobile learning projects on the Swiss education and training sector.
After joining the SIGN we ask new members to send a short self-introduction to the SIG's mailing list that tells something about themselves and their motivation being part of the SIG.
