The team


As flexible, easy and location-independent as studying at the eLearning Academy (eLAC) is, so is the organisation of the eLAC itself. The eLAC is located close to the University of Applied Sciences (UAS) Burgenland in a small office in the old administration building of Esterhazy Palace in Eisenstadt, 45 kilometres from Vienna.

The eLAC works with a number of independent module leaders who get to know the students in the distance learning courses. Only a small team works exclusively for eLAC. It is presented here for our students.

Mag. (FH) Anria Brandstätter, MA

Course manager and office manager

Anria Brandstätter herself holds two master's degrees in marketing communications. She advises interested parties and, as course manager, is the first point of contact for all student matters. If Anria isn't in the office, you'll find her in the garden.


Christian Ameseder, MA

Course design

Christian Ameseder is a graduate of the University of Applied Sciences (UAS) Burgenland from the study course Information|Media|Communication and is also a trained designer. He is responsible for the further development of the online teaching design. If Christian doesn't react immediately to bugs in the teaching design, he probably has a kendo tournament or is training Iaido.

Prof. (FH) Mag. Dr. Michael Roither

Managing director

Michael Roither ensures that the organisation of the eLAC is operational. He becomes visible for students when it comes to his favourite subjects of crisis communication, communication theories and communication ethics in the master´s programmes. If Michael is once late with the module feedback, then he's on tour with his band.

Responsibility for the content of the programme

Silvia Ettl-Huber is co-owner of eLAC and develops ideas for new programmes. Operationally, she appears for students when it comes to her favourite subjects of storytelling and scientific work. When Silvia is not giving module feedback, she is probably trail riding.
