One of the features of Industry 4.0 are definitely virtual classrooms in which the lecturers and students are participating from different places at the same time and the lecturers can store lecture material to be watched or aired in the future. This is even more important in computer science where workers very often work in virtual teams and students should be equipped with such skills during their education (IO1). With that sense in IO3 we define Joint Creative Classrooms (JCC) which are computer science courses developed in collaboration of two or more partner universities by using LD models (IO2) with a total workload of 2-3 ECTS. JCC is fully inline with Edu 4.0 recommendations and will support innovative joint teaching and creative learning practices such as personalised and active learning, learning by osmosis, collaborative learning and existing cases from real life educational settings thus making learning more interesting and effective. Both innovative teaching and creative learning presuppose an active role for the learner and new roles for the teacher who acts mainly as mentor and facilitator of the learning process. JCC will serve as showcases of courses within Computer Science fields (e.g. Software architecture, Web development, Human computer interaction, Modelling and computer simulation, Internet/IoT security, Machine learning, Data analytics/data mining) supporting the development of teachers’ skills and competences related to Edu 4.0.
