About

Welcome to the homepage of Marcus Specht. Here you find information about my recent projects, research works, and interesting things I found in the virtual and real world.

I am Professor for Advanced Learning Technologies at the Open University of the Netherlands and I am currently heading the CELSTEC Learning Technology Labs. I am and was involved in several national and international research projects on open educational content, competence based life long learning, personalized information support and contextualized systems.I received a Diploma in Psychology in 1995 and a Dissertation from the University of Trier in 1998 on adaptive information technology.

From 1998 until 2001 I worked as a senior researcher at the GMD research center on HCI and mobile information technology. From 2001 I headed the department “Mobile Knowledge” at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology (FIT).

From 2005 I was Associated Professor at the Open University of the Netherlands and working on competence based education, learning content engineering and management, and personalization for learning.

Since 2008 I am full Professor for Advanced Learning Technologies at the Educational Technology Expertise Centre of the Open University of the Netherlands.

Currently I am working on Mobile and Contextualized Learning Technologies, Learning Network Services, and Social and Immersive Media for Learning.

I am member of ACM, IEEE.

I am member of SIKS and ICO research schools in the Netherlands.

I am Apple Distinguished Educator.
