ED-WAVE: an Educational Software for Training in Wastewater Technologies Using Virtual Application Sites
Abstract:ED-WAVE is an electronic learning tool created under the Asia-Link Programme, a programme dedicated to the promotion of regional and multilateral networking between higher education institutions in European Union (EU) member states and South-East Asia and China. ED-WAVE has been developed by a consortium of three Asian and three European universities. It is an innovative product of high interdisciplinary action providing theoretical information, worked out examples, computer graphics, case study database and case base reasoning in the field of wastewater treatment and water reclamation. ED-WAVE aims also to provide a sustainable platform for ongoing learning on technologies improving water quality and efficiency by exposing the target groups to real-life applications through virtual industrial and municipal environments. The target groups involve students at undergraduate and graduate level, educators and young professionals working in water and related industries. The tool is going to be used in select courses in each institution as part of curriculum development.
