ACOUCOU: Development of web-based teaching materials for acoustics

05. November 2019 | von

More than one year ago, the polish company KFB Acoustics initiated a Strategic Partnership involving four European universities (KU Leuven, University of Le Mans, University of Zagreb and RWTH Aachen University) and two companies (HEAD Acoustics and KFB Acoustics), funded by the Erasmus+ program of the EU, with the goal to develop ideas and concepts for the implementation and extension of an online teaching portal including various courses on acoustics. This portal, called ACOUCOU, short for Acoustic Courseware, is available on www.acoucou.org and currently contains one course about Vibroacoustics and example materials from the previous project Acoustics for Industry (ACI).

At the end of October, two ITA employees participated in the final meeting in Wroclaw, Poland, where the outcomes of the project and future events related to the ACOUCOU platform were discussed. The most recent event, an interactive session on educational materials in acoustics, which took place at the ICA conference in Aachen, was rated as a great success by all participants and led to new contacts and helped to disseminate the teaching portal.

The project consortium is also happy to announce that additional funding was granted by the EU to fill the teaching portal with more course contents in a three-year project starting in 2020. This project is named Acoustics Knowledge Alliance  (ASKNOW) and is part of the Erasmus+ Knowledge Alliance program.
