Es freut uns, dass wir nun den 13. Teil unserer Podcast-Serie „Lehren – Lernen – Lauschen“ auf der TELucation-Webseite zur Verfügung stellen können. Diesesmal spricht Daniel Gruss über seine Erfahrungen:

Daniel Gruss (Institute of Applied Information Processing and Communications) spricht in diesem Podcast über seine Lehrveranstaltung Betriebssysteme, seine Leidenschaft für gute Lehre und seine Abneigung gegen Proctoring in der Online-Lehre. Außerdem verrät er uns, wie er zum Protagonisten einer Sitcom wurde und award-winning Musik geschrieben hat.

[keynote] 9th International Conference on Computer Technology Applications (ICCTA 2023) #conference #research

Martin is invited to give a keynote talk at 9th International Conference on Computer Technology Applications (ICCTA 2023) in May 2023. He will give an overview and insights about our running projects on MOOCs, Learning Analytics and Open Educational Resources.

Abstract of the talk:
In this talk the different research fields of MOOCs, Learning Analytics and OER are addressed and brought together. Over a couple of years now, different proponents announcing MOOS or OER or Learning Analytics. Nevertheless, the idea is to put all the research results together and provide it as a service for education, especially in Higher Education.
Using the example from Graz University of Technology the talk will provide insights how we can deal with it in the future based on research findings and hands-on experiences with real student data.

We would be happy if you join us in Vienna next year: [conference website]


With this announcement I would like to wish you merry christmas and a happy, healthy year 2023 – I will be back after my holidays in January 2023. Hopefully we got a little bit of snow in our mountains, because I would love to make some tours with my skis 🙂
Feel free to take a look to my tour descriptions to get an idea what I am taking about: [Link to profile @ Alpenverein]

[publication] Patterns of quiz attempts in a MOOC. The full-points-pattern and other patterns on the way to a successful MOOC in a lecture setting #tugraz #edil22 #MOOC #imoox #LearningAnalytics

Our research about „Patterns of quiz attempts in a MOOC. The full-points-pattern and other patterns on the way to a successful MOOC in a lecture setting“ was presented at EdMedia + Innovate Learning 2022:

Abstract:
The analysis of learner data in MOOCs provides numerous opportunities to look for patterns that may indicate participants‘ learning strategies. In this article, we investigated how participants in a MOOC (N=1,200), in which they must successfully complete a quiz in each unit, deal with the fact that they can repeat this quiz up to five times. On the one hand, patterns can be identified regarding the success of the quiz attempts: For example, 32.7% of the course participants always repeat the quizzes up to a full score, while about 16.0% of the participants repeat, but only until they pass all quizzes. Regarding the number of attempts, independent of the success, there is only a uniformity in „single attempt“; 12.6% of the participants only take exactly one attempt at each of the quizzes in the MOOC. An analysis of a subgroup of 80 learners which were students of a course where the MOOC was obligatory, shows that the proportion of learners attributed to patterns making more attempts is generally bigger. It can be shown as well that learners who uses several attempts, even after a full score results, tend to get better exam. The article concludes by discussing how these patterns can be interpreted and how they might influence future MOOC developments.

[publication] MOOCs, Learning Analytics and OER: An Impactful Trio for the Future of Education! #imoox #OER #tugraz #LearningAnalytics

Our contribution to the CSEDU 2020 conference about „MOOCs, Learning Analytics and OER: An Impactful Trio for the Future of Education!“ got finally published. I did the presentation in May 2020 in the very beginning of the COVID19-pandemic and it was my first complete online keynote 🙂

Abstract:
This paper discusses the general thesis that massive open online courses (in short MOOC), open educational resources (in short OER) and learning analytics are an impactful trio for future education, especially if combined. The contribution bases upon our practical experience as service providers and researchers in the department “Educational Technology” at Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) in Austria. The team members provide support to lecturers, teachers and researchers in these addressed fields for several years now, for example as host of the MOOC platform iMooX.at, providing only OER since 2015. Within this contribution, we will show, against some doubtful or conflicting opinions and positions, that (a) MOOCs are opening-up education; (b) learning analytics give insights and support learning, not only online learning, if implemented in MOOCs; and (c) that OER has the potential for sustainable resources, innovations and even more impact, especially if implemented in MOOCs.
