Two new eLab projects in the SUC P-2 program “Scientific information: Accessing, processing and saving”
Within the program CUS¬†P-2 “Scientific information: Accessing, processing and saving”, funded by¬†swissuniversities, eLab has started in the last weeks two new projects:
The former aims at creating¬†a competence center on digital law addressed¬†to teachers, researchers and collaborators of Swiss universities and Universities of Applied Sciences, to help them use new technologies¬†and digital resources in a correct way. The project has been promoted by USI in collaboration with the universities of Geneva, Neuch√Ętel and Basel.
To face growing requests about the use of applications on smartphones and mobile devices, the second project will develop an extension of the Swiss edu-ID authentication system for mobile devices and an application that allows secure third-party authentication on mobile devices through Swiss edu-ID.¬†The project has been promoted by¬†HTW Chur (Hochschule f√ľr Technik und Wirtschaft) in collaboration with USI.
eLab has published a call for a junior instructional designer.
The new collaborator will be working on the projet “Competence Center in Digital Law” and on other projects and activities at eLab, like the production of the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on Dante and the Commedia and the usability analysis of the Repubblica e Cantone Ticino website with the eye-tracking tool.
Deadline: applications must be submitted by email to dr. Stefano Tardini (email@example.com) by January 20th, 2016, enclosing your CV and a cover letter.
For all details, look at the call.
We are looking forward to receiving your applications!
