Local LTI Consumer #development #LTI #moodle

One of my Phd-students developed a local LTI consumer, which is now available for free on github. So if you would like to do amazing external stuff and afterwards embed it into moodle, it might be helpful:

Typically you will develop your LTI provider locally and because of that you also want to test it locally. Unfortunately no simple LTI consumer for local usage existed. So I have written one based on python, django and the python LTI library.

In einer neuen Serie „Forschungsvideos der Fakultät für Informatik“ auf iTunesU der TU Graz ist jetzt ein Video veröffentlicht über die neuesten Entwicklungen im Bereich Virtuelle Welten. Am Institut für Informationssysteme und Computer Medien und der Leitung von Prof. Kappe hat man eine neues Zahlungssystem entwickelt, welches den Geldhandel speziell in Open Source Welten deutlich vereinfacht.

[video] Open Source Multitouch Technology

Auf der ED-Media Konferenz nahm ich an einem Vortrag über den Einsatz von Multitouch Technologie in der Lehre teil. Sehr spannend fand ich, dass hierbei auf eine Open Source Lösung zurückgegriffen wurde: Community Core Vision

Community Core Vision, CCV for short (formally known as tbeta), is a open source/cross-platform solution for computer vision and machine sensing. It takes an video input stream and outputs tracking data (e.g. coordinates and blob size) and events (e.g. finger down, moved and released) that are used in building multi-touch applications. CCV can interface with various web cameras and video devices as well as connect to various TUIO/OSC/XML enabled applications and supports many multi-touch lighting techniques including: FTIR, DI, DSI, and LLP with expansion planned for the future vision applications (custom modules/filters).
