Systemic Learning Solutions


Systemic Learning Solutions is a value network project that started in 2011

Systemic Learning Solutions

Systemic Learning Solutions (SysTech) is a value network project which originated from the desire to refine and spread teaching practices, innovative ICT-concepts and procedures as learning solutions and services that can support educational institutions.
The Value Network consists of researchers, developers and educators in seven participant countries

The project develops a cyclical process model for the development and use of learning solutions in a multi-field value network that consists of researchers, developers and educators. The project is coordinated by the University of Jyväskylä (JYU). The research is done in cooperation with the University of Helsinki (UH) and our international research partner universities in the United Arab Emirates, Chile, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore and Spain. 

The main aim of the research project is to develop research-based principles and methods for the design and use of learning solutions.

  • The design principles focus especially on user-driven design process and usability evaluation.
  • The use principles determine ways of support and good practices in the actual use of learning solutions and effects on learning.
  • The value network currently includes seven partner countries, which enables and requires also focus on issues of localization and globalization.


The project is funded by the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation (TEKES) through the Learning Solutions program (2011-2015).
