Studying at the eLearning Academy (eLAC) is  flexible, easy and location-independent. And so is eLAC's organisation. The eLAC is located close to the University of Applied Sciences (UAS) Burgenland in an office that formerly held the administration building of Esterhazy Palace in Eisenstadt, a small town 45 kilometres South of Vienna.

The eLAC works with a number of independent module managers who get to know the students through their distance learning courses. Only a small team works exclusively for eLAC. Meet the team here:

Mag. (FH) Anria Brandstätter, MA

Course manager and office manager

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

Mag. Katharina Malanguka

Assistant course management

Katharina Malanguka, who studied sociology, is the new member of the team. As assistant to the course management she is responsible for the administration of eLAC and is in charge of finances and correspondence. When Katharina is not working on the computer, she plays the piano or relaxes in the forest.

Managing director

Michael Roither is in charge of keeping the organisation of the eLAC operational. He works with students in the programme in courses related to his favourite subjects crisis communications, communication theories and communication ethics. If Michael happens to be late with the module feedback, then he's most probably on tour with his band.

Responsibility for the programme contents

Silvia Ettl-Huber is co-owner of eLAC and develops ideas for new programmes. Students come in contact with her when she teaches her favourite subjects storytelling and scientific writing. When Silvia is not working out module feedback, she is probably out and about trail riding.
