[publication] Support of Video-Based lectures with Interactions – Implementation of a first prototype

Our contribution at this year ED-MEDIA conference in Tampere, Finnland about „Support of Video-Based lectures with Interactions – Implementation of a first prototype“ is now online available. The slides have alreday been published here.
Abstract:

In general videos have a more or less consuming character without any interaction possibilities. Due to this fact a web-based application is developed which offers different methods of communication and interaction to a certain learning-video. This should help attendees to avoid that they become tired and annoyed. The lecturer is able to use interactions to omit whether learners are able to understand the content of the video. For instance the developed web-application offers the possibility to add multiple-choice-questions at predefined positions. Furthermore there are many different kind of analysis as for example a detailed attention-profile. In this publication the implementation of a first prototype is described as well as a first field study which points out that learners? interactions and engagements increased arbitrarily.

[publication] Attention Profiling Algorithm for Video-based Lectures

Our first publication at this year HCII conference in Crete, Greece about „Attention Profiling Algorithm for Video-based Lectures“ is now online available as prelimiary version. The slides are already published here.
Abstract:

Due to the fact that students‘ attention is the most crucial resource in a high-quality course it is from high importance to control and analyze it. This could be done by using the interaction and the communication because they are known as valuable influencing factors of the attention. In this publication we introduce a web-based information system which implements an attention-profiling algorithm for learningvideos
as well as live-broadcastings of lectures. For that different methods of interaction are offered and analyzed. The evaluation points out that the attention profiling algorithm delivers realistic values.

[publication] Unterstützung von videobasiertem Unterricht durch Interaktionen – Implementierung eines ersten Prototyps

In der Ausgabe 9/3 der ZfHE ist unser Beitrag zu „Unterstützung von videobasiertem Unterricht durch Interaktionen – Implementierung eines ersten Prototyps“ erschienen und online zugänglich.
Zusammenfassung:

Videos sind meist reine Konsumationsmedien ohne weitere Interaktion. Aus diesem Grund wird eine Web-Anwendung entwickelt, welche es ermöglicht, verschiedene Formen der Interaktion und Kommunikation während dem Betrachten eines Videos bereitzustellen. Dies soll den Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmern helfen, den sogenannten „Berieselungseffekt“ zu vermeiden. Die bzw. der Vortragende sollte mit Hilfe der Interaktionen feststellen können, ob die Teilnehmer/innen die Lerninhalte verstehen. Die entwickelte Web-Anwendung bietet unter anderem die Möglichkeit, Multiple-Choice-Fragen zu bestimmten Zeitpunkten in das Video einzubetten. Außerdem stehen viele Analysemöglichkeiten wie zum Beispiel ein genaues Aufmerksamkeitsprofil zur Verfügung. Eine erste Evaluation zeigt eine rege Teilnahme an den Interaktionen.

[publication] Introducing an Information System for successful support of selective attention in online courses

Our publication about „Introducing an Information System for successful support of selective attention in online courses“ at this year HCII conference is now available online as a draft.
Abstract:

Human learning processes are strongly depending on attention of each single learner. Due to this fact any measurement helping to increase students’ attention is from high importance. Till now there are some developments called Audience-Response-Systems only available for face-to-face education even for masses. In this publication we introduce a web-based information system which is also usable for online-systems. Students’ attention will be conserved based on different interaction forms during the live stream of a lecture. The evaluation pointed out that the system helps to enlarge the attention of each single participant
