[publication]The Development of Two Math E-Learning Systems for Primary School Children in Android #tugraz #mlearning #research

Our publication titled “The Development of Two Math E-Learning Systems for Primary School Children in Android” for the EDMedia and Innovative Learning 2023 conference is now online available:

Abstract: Electronic learning, with all its different variations, approaches and applications, is a very relevant topic in today’s education. E-Learning is a wide field, as it affects classes in school as well as training scenarios for adult persons. This work describes the development of two E-Learning systems: EinMalEins Trainer and Division Trainer. Both applications are part of the learning lab of Graz University of Technology. This document sums up the theoretical background of the development process as well as the realization. A lot of emphasis in this work laid on applying different testing methods, therefore thinking aloud testing as well as automated testing are handled more deeply. The methodology behind these methods is explained and the results are presented.

[publication] Math Trainer as a Chatbot Via System (Push) Messages for Android #education #TechnologyEnhancedLearning

Our research titled “Math Trainer as a Chatbot Via System (Push) Messages for Android” got published in the newest issue of the International Journal of Interactive Mobile Technologies.

In the recent years, as technology grew, so did the chatbot technology. More and more companies and people are using and reaping the benefits from them. This paper shows how a chatbot for mathematical tasks, named mathbot, was developed. The chatbot uses mathematical exercises from the “Schulapps” of the LearningLab of Graz, University of Technology and combines them with textual questions to provide a useful utility for practicing. It is shown that such a chatbot could be useful for pupils and teachers by evaluating a test run in an elementary school.

[app] iMooX Coach App #imoox #app

iMooX Coach App

Die iMooX Coach App ist nun fertig und online verfügbar. Das Ziel der App ist nicht (!) die Online-Kurse von iMooX.at via App zugänglich zu machen, da diese sowieso über den Browser möglich ist. Es ist vielmehr die Idee eines Lerntagebuchs und soll beim Lernen mit einem MOOC gezielt unterstützen:

Die App behält einen Überblick über alle Ihre aktuellen Kurse, Termine und anstehenden Kurse. Außerdem kann die App, sofern Sie dies zulassen, Ihnen Benachrichtigungen und Erinnerungen schicken. Durch das eigene Hinzufügen von Terminen, Lernzielen und Notizen können Sie spielerisch Ihren Lernfortschritt antreiben. Laden Sie jetzt die iMoox Coach App runter und behalten Sie Ihre Kurse als auch Ihren Lernfortschritt immer im Überblick.

[app] 1×1 Trainer #tugraz #math #ios #android

Wir haben den 1×1 Trainer grundlegend überarbeitet und mit Handschrifterkennung ausgestattet. Die iOS-Version für iPhone und iPad gibt es schon länger [iOS-Version], nun ist es aber auch die Android-Version verfügbar. Ab sofort können die Kinder also auch dort die Zahlen per Finger eingeben und wir hoffen so, dass es noch einfacher wird mit der App umzugehen. Die Registierung kann direkt in der App oder auch über unsere LearningLab gemacht werden.

The 1×1 Trainer App with handwriting recognition is supposed to help children with learning multiplication tables. The numbers can be written with the finger.
