Reusing Streaming Contents in Engineering and Education Courses

Abstract : Bologna's process and the opening of university teaching to new educational scenarios provide an opportunity for the implementation of innovative and active methodologies. This paper describes a practice implemented by the share and reuse of learning contents using streaming technology. Streaming technology was used since it promotes the support of pedagogical activity as a dynamic resource and oriented to a model of shared learning. The motivation beyond this idea was the share of teacher's efforts in the development of didactic resources that can be reused on identical curriculum classes on a later moment. Also, within different learning units, some concepts are considered wellknown, but they must be remembered specially if they are not used for some time. Didactical resources where developed and made available allowing and facilitating the student's revise needed. In these cases, only activities are changed. In this model, it is underlying the constructivist theory of learning: students are motivated to construct knowledge for themselves. It demonstrated to be an enhanced experience not only concerning the sharing of knowledge but also because it promotes a desired partnership inter-department. The possibility to make available these contents in an open access repository is a new challenge that it is being tested (e-Learning Repository, UMinho/TecMinho).
