Acoucou Platform to Acquire Profesional Skills and Knowledge in the Field of Acoustics
Today, in the digital era, education must meet the needs and adapt to modern forms of knowledge transfer. While this is often implemented in higher education programs (distance learning, OpenCourseWare platforms), vocational education and training seems to be the most traditional branch of education, especially in the field of specialized courses for engineers.
Our goal is to create space for new, innovative and multidisciplinary approaches for teaching and e learning acoustics (e.g., based on gamification, VR, or web simulators). The ACOUCOU Platform is a part of a strategy aimed at expanding and strengthening acoustic knowledge, supporting the development of innovative teaching methods based on attractive and effective delivery of content, services, teaching methodologies and practices at national and international levels.
The form of materials and courses published on the Acoustic Courseware Platform are suitable to be used for self learning as well as in blended learning, where an educator uses materials from platform to carry out training among empl oyees/students. Technical, professional knowledge is usually presented as text including equations and technical drawings. Presenting it in a visually attractive form is more appealing and increases the motivation of the users. The visualization of phenome na simplifies the understanding of problems and makes it easy to acquir e knowledge in similar, practical situations of an engineer’s work.
