  • MatheVital (visual interactive tools for advanced learning) (http://www.mathe-vital.de) Description: MatheVital is a modular, freely accessible collection of interactive material for education in math- related subjects. The material is linked not as much by common focus towards certain educational units, but rather by the project’s overall philosophy: generating content of high quality and thereby actually adding to the benefit of the computer as a medium. By means of appropriate simulation environments, the provided material should offer to the learner a precise, very visual, quasi haptic approach to usually abstract data. In the project, there are several objectives on designing material: • Material is to offer a high level of interactivity • Material is to be comprehensive, interrelated and encourage further research and questions • Material is to be usable independent of platform via the internet • For the lecturer, the process of generating material should be as easy as possible, embedded in his/her normal workflow • The material’s editing should reflect a high degree of professionalism Those modules created in the context of MatheVital thus support the learner, providing material for immersion in private study; the lecturer gains access to demonstration material which can be used in class. Type: Access and integration into the university. The initiative is integrated into the TU Munich and provides a WIKI for annotation, an open collection of applets and scripts. There is a high acceptance because the tools and scripts re openly available and useful for visualization. Features: Both for learners and lecturers accessible. WIKI + Repository. The initiative is successful because it is an additional initiative to the elearning activities of the faculty.
