The VoLL-KI Project is funded by the German Ministry of Research and education (BMBF) with almost 5 Million Euro and runs Dec. 2021 to November 2025.

Welcome to the web pages of VoLL-KI

“Von Lernenden Lernen” (“Learning from Learners” – Acronym: VoLL-KI – is a joint project of the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) (coordination), the Otto-Friedrich-University Bamberg and the University of Applied Sciences Coburg.

Aim of the project

The research project VoLL-KI aims to improve tertiary education on three levels combining data- and knowledge-based artificial intelligence (AI) approaches:

Macro Level:
evidence-based improvement of study programs

Meso Level:
context-adaptive, rectifiable recommendations for individual study planning

Micro Level:
learner-specific, automated diagnosis and support of learning assets

The VoLL-KI project combines data and knowledge-based approaches of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Based on preliminary work on knowledge graphs, error libraries for programming, intelligent tutor systems, explainable and interactive machine learning, chatbots, virtual reality, and recommender systems the project will develop intelligent learning support systems. The methods and systems in the project will be piloted in curricula of Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, and eventually related areas at the three universities.
