[presentation] Automated system testing for a learning management system #LMS #moodle #tugraz

Lukas hat sich in seiner Masterarbeit mit der Möglichkeit von Sytemtests für das Learning Management System Moodle beschäftigt und diese für das TeachCenter der TU Graz ausgearbeitet. Hier die Folien seiner Verteidigung:

Zum Start des TeachCenter gibt es auch ein kleines Video von uns, mit einer klaren Botschaft: tc@tugraz.at wenn es brennt 🙂

TeachCenter neu an der TU Graz #tugraz #teachcenter #moodle

Heute ist es soweit, nach ca. einem Jahr geben wir heute das TeachCenter 2.0 frei und haben damit den Wechsel von der alten Plattform auf eine Moodle-Instanz vollzogen. Einerseits ein wenig wehmütig, denn immerhin haben wir nun 10 Jahre ein System gehabt, welches mehr als gute Dienste geleistet hat. Daher darf ich an dieser Stelle nochmals Prof. Scerbakov und seinen Team herzlich danken, die hier mit viel Arbeit eine unbezahlbare Aufbauarbeit an der TU Graz geleistet haben.
Ab sofort ist das Learning-Managmentsystem der TU Graz also nun auch vollkommen auf Moodle aufgesetzt und steht den Studierenden und Lehrenden zur Verfügung. Sehr viel Arbeit haben wir auch ins Design gesteckt, damit die Oberfläche nicht nur mobil ansprechend ist.
Nun aber uns allen alles Gute mit dem neuen System und wir hoffen, dass wir damit unserem Leitspruch We care about education gerecht werden 🙂 .

[publication] The TU Graz E-book Strategy: from Content Management to Online Mutliple Device Usage

My first publication with the title „The TU Graz E-book Strategy: from Content Management to Online Mutliple Device Usage“ I did for a workshop in russian language is now online available.
Abstract:

This paper presents an authoring tool for creating content for teaching and learning purposes at universities in the meaning of e-learning2.0, named the ABC- Manager. The paper focuses on the advantages of the tool as well as its didactical background. The current use of the ABC-Manager as an integrated part of the e- learning strategy of Graz University of Technology especially in the face of its online version, the e-book platform of the learning management system in use called TU Graz TeachCenter.

[publication] Emotion Detection: Application of the Valence Arousal Space for Rapid Biological Usability Testing to enhance Universal Access

A Draftversion of our publication „Emotion Detection: Application of the Valence Arousal Space for Rapid Biological Usability Testing to enhance Universal Access“ at this year HCII Conference is now online available.
Abstract:

Emotion is an important mental and physiological state, influencing cognition, perception, learning, communication, decision making, etc. It is considered as a definitive important aspect of user experience (UX), although at least well developed and most of all lacking experimental evidence. This paper deals with an application for emotion detection in usability testing of software.
It describes the approach to utilize the valence arousal space for emotion modeling in a formal experiment. Our study revealed correlations between low performance and negative emotional states. Reliable emotion detection in usability tests will help to prevent negative emotions and attitudes iproducts. This can be a great advantage to enhance Universal Access.

[publication] Usability metrics of time and stress – Biological enhanced performance test of a university wide learning management system

Im Rahmen der USAB 2008 mit dem Thema „HCI & Usability for Education and Work“ haben wir einen Beitrag zu „Usability metrics of time and stress – Biological enhanced performance test of a university wide learning management system“ erstellt.
Abstract:

This paper describes the modification and outcome of a performance test applied to a university wide learning management system under realistic conditions to identify usability problems and to compare measures such as success rate, task time and user satisfaction with requirements. Two user groups with 20 test users each took part in this study. During the whole test psychophysiological parameters of the test persons were monitored and recorded, in order to find event related stress symptoms. Modifications of the original test allowed a faster analysis of relevant quantitative metrics and the collection of qualitative information.
