Abstract

Nowadays, engineering studies are characterized by high mobility of students, lecturers and workforce and by the dynamics of multinational companies where “classes” or “students’ teams” composed of persons with different competencies and backgrounds, working together in projects to solve complex problems. Such an environment will become increasingly relevant in multinational universities and companies, and it has brought a number of challenges to existing e-learning technologies. COOPER is an ongoing project that focuses on developing and testing such a collaborative and project-centred leaning environment. This paper proposes a COOPER framework and shows its approaches to address the various research challenges.
