eLearning Lab (eLab)

eLab aims at improving the quality of teaching at USI through the integration of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies). To achieve this goal, eLab provides USI faculties, departments, institutes, teachers, and collaborators with the required infrastructures and services.

eLab's basic services include:

  • Management of iCorsi (http://www.icorsi.ch/) and assistance for its use. iCorsi is an online Learning Management System that allows teachers to share learning materials, engage in discussions with students, communicate information about the courses, manage students' evaluations, and so on. Moreover, eLab offers some workshops about the use of iCorsi and other ICTs in teaching and learning activities, dealing with both their technological and pedagogical aspects.
