OERContent.nrw: Two Projects of the Faculty of Medicine receive Funding OERContent.nrw: Two Projects of the Faculty of Medicine receive Funding

Funding by the Ministry of Culture and Science together with the Digital University NRW (DH.NRW)

With the OERContent.nrw funding line, the state is funding a total of 18 collaborative projects for digital teaching and learning formats at universities with more than ten million euros. Fifty-eight project applications from universities in NRW applied for the funding. The successful applications, in which at least three universities collaborate on e-learning formats, will be funded with up to 1.5 million euros. E-learning formats can be online courses, learning videos or virtual labs, for example. The projects will start on April 1, 2022, and the universities will have a total of two years to complete the projects.

The eKommMed.nrw project (e-learning resources for competence-oriented communication training in healthcare in North Rhine-Westphalia) is successfully represented in the OERContent.nrw funding line. Here, the creation of free educational materials (Open Educational Resources, OER) for provision on the state portal ORCA.nrw (www.orca.nrw) is promoted across universities.

In the eKommMed.nrw project, the experience of seven medical faculties of the KommMed.NRW network is bundled to develop OER e-learning offerings for communication and conversation in medical treatment situations. One multimedia focus is on interactive videos that can be used in self-study as well as in classic teaching-learning scenarios and exams. Participants are the University of Bielefeld, Ruhr-University Bochum, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-University Bonn, Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf, University of Cologne and Westfälische Wilhelms-University Münster. The consortium is led by the University of Duisburg-Essen.


"ANDI" (ANatomyDIgital).
The Ministry of Culture and Science, together with the Digital University NRW, is funding the "ANDI" (ANatomieDIgital) project from April 2022. The anatomical institutes from Aachen, Bonn and Cologne and the Audiovisual Media Center Aachen will jointly develop and evaluate a virtual learning application for students of medicine and medical professions as part of the two-year funding. After completion of the project, the application will be available free of charge to all teachers and students on the state portal for studies and teaching ORCA.nrw (Open Resources Campus NRW).

A sound knowledge of human anatomy is an essential prerequisite for later clinical activities. The ANDI learning app will allow learners to engage in hands-on learning about the structure of the body and continuously link learning content interactively with practical skills and clinical competencies. It supports independent and interprofessional learning and promotes longitudinal integration of knowledge and skills.
