[publication] Determining the Causing Factors of Errors for Multiplication Problems

Our chapter about „Determining the Causing Factors of Errors for Multiplication Problems“ as part of the book „Immersive Education“ got published.
Abstract:

Literature in the area of psychology and education provides domain knowledge to learning applications. This work detects the difficulty levels within a set of multiplication problems and analyses the dataset on different error types as described and determined in several pedagogical surveys and investigations. Our research sheds light to the impact of each error type in simple multiplication problems and the course of error types in problem-size.

[publication] Mining and Visualizing Trends from Educational Systems using Linked Data

Our chapter about „Mining and Visualizing Trends from Educational Systems using Linked Data“ as part of the book „Immersive Education“ got published.
Abstract:

This work introduces a case study on usage of semantic context modelling and creation of Linked Data from logs in educational systems like a Personal Learning Environment (PLE) with purpose on improvements in generally with respect to social and semantic analysis of the parameters on user and activity centric level. Sample case study demonstrates the usage of semantic modelling of the activity context using adequate domain specific ontologies and semantic technologies and visualization of such data as result of analysis of such modelled data represented in the form of Linked Data. This approach implies the easy interfacing and extensibility on machine or human level offering fast insight on statistical trends.
