On-line Exams and Third Party Certification in High Education and Industry by using of Learning Platform and Work Cooperation Open Source Management System ILIAS

By the rearrangement to modular programs of studies at colleges and universities the time, effort and expenditure for time constrained assessments (TCA) rises. The same problem occurs in the industry, for the case of Third Part Certifications, carried out by independent bodies. Electronic exams (E-exams) offer a possibility to master these tasks. In addition, E-exams offer new didactic possibilities and questions with which complicated learning purposes can be analyzed. Different IT solutions for the realization of E-exams exist. Commercial solutions offer often numerous functions and mostly an extensive servic e. However, Open Source solutions can be adjusted to specific requirements and be individually functional extended. In different higher-education institutions in Germany E-exams are already tested for a long time and are set up gradually in the institutions. This work analyzes on-line exams and statistical survey possibilities for research by using learning platform and work cooperation open source management system ILIAS, developed at the University in Cologne and licensed under the GPL (GNU General Public License). Practical, applicable examples for use, realized at the University in Cologne and with its industrial cooperation partners for the case of third party certification are given.
