Our presentation at this year ED-Media Conference in Toronto:
Mit Sandra Schaffert habe ich einen kurzen Beitrag in der aktuellen Ausgabe “E-Learning und Bologna” (hrsg. von Rolf Schulmeister) der Zeitschrift für E-Learning geschrieben, der sich mit dem Thema Open Content aus Perspektive der PR von Hochschulen befasst, er trägt den Titel “Die Standortattraktivität europäischer Hochschulen fördern? – Der mögliche Beitrag von Open Content“. Die ursprüngliche, nicht überarbeitete Langfassung des Beitrags haben wir online gestellt:
Die Aufzeichnung unseres Vortrags auf der heurigen Learntec über “Microblogging – Potentiale an der Hochschule” ist nun verfügbar. Der Vortrag ist auch Teil unseres iTunesU Channel. Die Folien und Foto sind ja schon online.
Ich muss mich noch für die Tonqualität entschuldigen – liegt ausschließlich an mir, da ich die Einstellungen am Funkmikro verändert hatte 🙂
We are happy to announce that our publication “Microblogs in Higher Education – a chance to facilitate informal and process oriented learning?” published in Journal Computer & Education is now online available.
Microblogging is one of the latest Web 2.0 technologies. The key elements are online communication using 140 characters and the fact that it involves “following” anyone. There has been a great deal of excitement about this in recent months. This paper reports on a research study that was carried out on the use of a microblogging platform for process-oriented learning in Higher Education. Students of the University of Applied Sciences of Upper Austria used the tool throughout their course. All postings were carefully tracked, examined and analyzed in order to explore the possibilities offered by microblogging in education. It can be concluded that microblogging should be seen as a completely new form of communication that can support informal learning beyond classrooms.

Amazing, our article as well as our presentation “How People are Using Twitter during Conferences” gathered much more interest as ever expected.
There was a big report on Read/Write Web a month ago “Study Reveals High Levels of Twitter Use at Conferences” and our presentation on slideshare reached the “Hot on Facebook”
How People are using Twitter at Conferences is being talked about on Facebook more than any other document on SlideShare right now. So we’ve put it on the homepage of SlideShare.net (in the “Hot on Facebook” section)
as well as the “Hot on Twitter” list:

Thanks to all who were and are interested in our research and keep us motivated to do further work.
Our publication “Will Personal Learning Environments Become Ubiquitous through the Use of Widgets?” for this year i-Know Conference is now online available.
Nowadays Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) are described as the use of different social software tools for learning and teaching. The use of common web browsers often is a precondition to fulfil the requirements of social software tools. In this publication a new perspective as well as a couple of prototypes is presented to allow a more independent solution in this context. Using the new JavaFX technology so called widgets are implemented which can be used on different devices as well as different operating systems. Furthermore also the web browser can be replaced by a browser instance. It can be summarized that through the use of widgets the learning environment of the future can be more individualized and personalized.
