Our team of university-level instructional systems designers, EDUDL+, contributes actively to research in the field of distance learning. It collaborates with our psychology professors to do this.

UniDistance Suisse stands out due to its core theme of research in the field of university didactics, the development of teaching and, in particular, e-learning.

We evaluate and compare hybrid or blended learning models, develop these further and monitor their effects on learning success and the satisfaction of students.

One important field in this is also the empirical analysis of the use of virtual reality, web-based apps and tablets to increase learning success.

Furthermore, new opportunities for personalised teaching are being investigated and new e-tools to support students are being developed and validated.
