SIG leader: Willi Bernhard, FFHS
The SIG Digital Collaboration is a relaunch of the SIG e-Collaboration which lasted from 2010 to 2016.
Since it was established in 2010, the group has carried out the following activities like: collection, categorisation and visualisation of e-learning and e-collaboration scenarios, design of social media models for learning, development of a MOOC business model, meeting with e-collaboration experts at CERN and various communication activities (at INTE'13 and the SWITCH eduhub days).
The re-opened SIG is focusing on new needs and current /future trends for a "smart" collaboration. While e-Collaboration relies more or less on electronic tools, digital collaboration should incorporate smart technologies that make the user's work easier, more intuitive or deeply immersive.
The SIG Digital Collaboration brings together actors who want to design and experience collaborative activities in the age of digital transformation through the use of existing or new digital technologies. The members of the group can test new tools, methods and technologies in collaboration scenarios in order to experience their effectiveness and identify problems and opportunities in current or future projects.
The next SIG Digital Collaboration meeting will be in June 2018. Members of the SIG will receive an invitation.
