Center for Digital Education

We support teaching and learning through online content, digital tools and learning analytics. We bring the latest learning technology research into everyday practice.

Our mission

The mission of the Center for Digital Education is to explore and exploit the advances in digital technologies for education. Digital technologies encompass content (e.g. online courses), tools (e.g. jupyter notebooks, simulations, automatic graders), and data about education at all scales of the education system. The Center for Digital Education provides students with the tools and resources to become more efficient. We help teachers to transform their practices as well as help managers and researchers understand and scale their innovations. The Center for Digital Education supports all stakeholders of EPFL’s education mission: Teachers are our main clients with regards to the production of content and the integration of tools in education. Students are the end-users of the tools and material. We involve Researchers in the analysis of the educational datasets that we are curating.

The Center for Digital Education (CEDE) and Teaching Support Center (CAPE) have setup documentation and a Help Desk to support teachers in teaching remotely using ZOOM and other tools.
