"Global Classroom“ – Pilot Project for Distance Education in Media Law

"Global Classroom“ – Pilot Project for Distance Education in Media Law

Besides the general optimisation of e-learning offerings related to media law at Universität Hamburg, a central component is the e-learning project “Global Classroom”, in the context of which the Hans-Bredow-Institut has developed an e-learning tool (“Global Classroom“) for using virtual forms of teaching in legal studies. The tool is based on an individually programmed software platform and has been further developed since 2002.

Project Description

Since 2002 the annual global classroom seminars offered students from Hamburg, Toronto and Bologna an opportunity to get to know a new form of computer-aided learning and jointly analyse, discuss and advance legal issues in the virtual classroom. Recent topics of the seminars included “Internet Regulation and Free Flow of Information”, “Freedom of Expression and Privacy on the Internet”, “Broadcasting Regulation: Market Entry and Licensing” and “Youth Media Protection and Broadcasting: Constitutional Backgrounds and Regulation Concepts”. Global classroom seminars will continue to be offered regularly.

The institute received financial support for further developing this initiative and for the continuous advancement of the didactics in the context of the „Global Classroom” through the E-Learning Consortium Hamburg (ELCH) in 2004 and 2005. Since then, the offering has been financed from own resources.
