Abstract

Knowledge networks can be used to support alternative learning methods at university courses. A method is proposed for activating the students in the learning processes at university courses. The method combines: 1) Active learning where students are training each other, 2) eLearning from intranet based knowledge networks, and 3) Problem Based Learning. The method has been tested and evaluated at two university courses with a total of 127 students and the results show that: 1) Students show a high appreciation of the method, 2) Teachers show a positive interest in the method, and 3) The method makes learning more efficient and is recommended to be used at university courses ingeneral where the theoretical scope of the course can be represented in a knowledge network.
