Training and Support

The Center for Digital Education is here to help you design and develop digital educational resources.

Support and Documentation

We are the MOOC Factory at EPFL. We help you design, record, build and distribute your online courses. Contact: Christian Vonarburg

Flexible and versatile, Jupyter Notebooks are great tools for teaching! We provide a centrally managed instance of Jupyter Labs for EPFL students and teachers as well as technical and pedagogical support. Contact: NOTO Support

The Center for Digital Education (CEDE) and Teaching Support Center (CAPE) have setup documentation and a Help Desk to support teachers in adapting their classes to flexible teaching in September 2020. The documentation is more useful than ever in transforming the way we teach in this “post-pandemic” phase.

Open education

At EPFL, we believe knowledge produced with the support of public funding should be freely available to anyone. Open education can contribute to the broader openness movement by providing lectures and course materials that create broader and better understanding of our work and impact.

EPFL aims to provide an inclusive and accessible and inclusive environment for all its students and staff, so that everyone can thrive and succeed. The Center for Digital Education (CEDE) can help you implement certain measures to enhance the accessibility of your courses, e.g. by recording your lectures and implementing interactive educational technologies.

When it comes to protecting and sharing creative works, there are two main approaches: “All Rights Reserved” and Creative Commons licensing. In line with EPFL’s commitment to promoting open science and facilitating the unrestricted sharing of ideas, we advise opting for a Creative Commons license.


We build the datastore and the methods for learning analytics to enhance teaching and learning at EPFL. Do you want to apply data science to education ? We are looking forward to collaborating with you.

Ethical Skills for the Digital World

We provide support and develop resources to help teachers integrate ethical thinking skills into courses about digital technology.

The Center for Digital Education is a member of the Center for Learning Sciences (LEARN). The Center LEARN organizes events which are of interest to the EPFL community, especially the Lunch&LEARN presentations which are a great opportunity to discover new approaches to teaching and learning. 

Financial Support

The vice-presidency for Education at EPFL supports innovative projects in education via the DRIL fund. Two calls for proposal are organised per year.

We invite you to join the community of engineering educators and learning scientists. You can share your experiences in SEFI Special Interest groups, present your work in a practice or research paper, or organise a workshop. The SEFI team is organising drop-in sessions during lunch to help you brainstorm ideas on how you can participate.
