In this short video, Prof. J. Augusto Felício from CEGE talks about the importance of the horizontal collaboration in Logistics.

“It’s a very interesting case. It raises serious considerations because while it provides answers to issues regarding cost and service efficiency levels, it also addresses other current concerns linked to logistics.”

The eknowIT eLearning Platform

Online e-learning courses suffer high abandonment rates, particularly when performing a course is optional or voluntary. Dropout rates of 20% to 80% has been reported in e-learning, so decreasing dropout rate is one of the major challenges of e-learning systems conception and deployment.
A recent trend is gamification – the theory is that gaming mechanisms (instant feedback, set of rules, set of constraints and voluntary participation) can be inserted in non-entertainment contexts to increase user’s engamentent with a system or a process.
In the context of this e-learning system for the eKnowIT project gamification mechanisms will be used aiming to increase user motivation, paired with the use of a compelling visual “game like” interface. This will be developed over a FOSS (Free Open source Software) e-learning system: Moodle.
The motivational engagement will be attempted with system mechanics that use several psychological drivers:
             - Cooperation & competition – coopetition
             - Feedback from peer e-learners and teachers
             - Visually appealing interface
             - Feedback and recognition: scores and badges (a form of credentials)
