Inclusive Design Curriculum Network (IDCnet)
The strategic goal of IDCnet is to integrate information and identify core knowledge sets and skills for model curricula in Design for All for Information and Communication Products, Systems and Services. IDCnet situates its activities in the multidisciplinary area of design, especially design for, and supported by, information and communication technologies.

The Multireader Project aims at heterogeneous print disabled reader groups reading multimedia documents. While audiobooks make use of structured time-dependent media, titles integrating graphics, video, or audio are largely inaccessible to visually impaired people.

The Community Room project is funded by the state Schleswig-Holstein and the Deutsche Telekom as part of the "Initiative New Media SH". It aims at developing learning spaces that can be utilized for different E-Learning scenarios, supported through web-based E-Learning services.
Our HCI Lab offers a wide variety of technical features, both in hardware, and in software, in order to support multimodal interaction with state-of-the-art techniques in software, as well as in hardware. Three-dimensional design and interaction supported through augmentation in presentation, as well as force-feedback as an additional sensory interface in exploring virtual 3D environments through hardware support are covered in two different projects.
Exploring new ways of interaction in digital TV through the MHP standard, and researching the development of interactive services subsequently is just one other target in our HCI Lab.
In co-operation with the Chair for Electronic Business at MMC, an E-Learning CD-ROM has been developed in the field of corporate finance.
