Videoplattform an der TU Graz mit neuer Startseite #update

Es freut uns, dass unsere Videoplattform TUbe nicht nur das übliche Update erhalten hat, sondern auch gleich die Startseite noch übersichtlicher gestaltet werden konnte. So kann man nun gleich zwischen Kursen, Events und Livestreams unterscheiden. Viel Spaß mit den Inhalten 🙂

[video] Lernvideo zur Formatierung #video #tugraz

Im Rahmem meiner Lehrveranstaltung „Technology Enhanced Learning“ haben Studierende wieder Lernvideos erstellt. Die Aufgabenstellung war, dass es für den Bereich Informatik und Sekundarstufe passen sollte. Hier eines rund um das Thema Formatierung.

[videos] Grundlegende Einstiegsvideos für Programmiergrundlagen

An der TU Graz sind im Rahmen eines kleinen Projektes vier kurze Videos entstanden um Studierenden den Einstieg in die Programmiervorlesungen zu erleichtern. Unter anderem wird gezeigt wie man sich eine virtuelle Maschine einrichtet oder wie man GitLab verwenden kann. Die Videos sind offen und frei zugänglich.

[workshop] Video in der Lehre / Mixed Reality in der Lehre #tugraz #ar #vr #video

Ich darf heute an der Hochschule für Technik Stuttgart zwei Workshops halten. Hier möchte ich die dazugehörigen Slides posten.

1) Videos in der Hochschullehre


2) Mixed Reality in der Lehre

[presentation] Erstellung und Einsatz von Lehr- und Lernvideos #tugraz #lehrvideo #imoox

Im Rahmen der Fachtagung „Lernprodukte/Erklärvideos – digitales Prüfen“ hat man mich gebeten, ein wenig über unsere Erfahrungen zu Lehr- und Lernvideos zu geben. Hier sind meine Folien:

Ich werde auch dabei den Lernvideo-Canvas vorstellen.

[publication] Scheduling Interactions in Learning Videos: A State Machine Based Algorithm #tugraz #Interactive

We did an article about „Scheduling Interactions in Learning Videos: A State Machine Based Algorithm“ for the first issue of the „International Journal of Learning Analytics and Artificial Intelligence for Education (iJAI)„.

Abstract:

Based on the currently developing trend of so called Massive Open Online Courses it is obvious that learning videos are more in use nowadays. This is some kind of comeback because due to the maxim “TV is easy, book is hard” [1][2] videos were used rarely for teaching. A further reason for this rare usage is that it is widely known that a key factor for human learning is a mechanism called selective attention [3][4]. This suggests that managing this attention is from high importance. Such a management could be achieved by providing different forms of interaction and communication in all directions. It has been shown that interaction and communication is crucial for the learning process [6]. Because of these remarks this research study introduces an algorithm which schedules interactions in learning videos and live broadcastings. The algorithm is implemented by a web application and it is based on the concept of a state machine. Finally, the evaluation of the algorithm points out that it is generally working after the improvement of some drawbacks regarding the distribution of interactions in the video.

[webinar, recording] Learning and instruction videos: design, production, use #video #education #talk #tugraz

Last week I gave a short webinar about „learning and instruction videos: design, production, use“ for the eduhub network. Now also the recording is available:

[talk] More than a MOOC – Seven Learning and Teaching Scenarios to Use MOOCs in Higher Education and Beyond #mooc #imoox #research #tugraz

I prepared for the „International Seminar on Linguistics and Literature“ held by Fac. of Letters, Universitas Muhammadiyah Purwokerto, in Central Java, Indonesia, a talk about „More than a MOOC – Seven Learning and Teaching Scenarios to Use MOOCs in Higher Education and Beyond„. My main idea was to present how manigfold MOOCs can be used, if the content is available as Open Educational Resource. It is just great to see how flexible online teaching can be.
The talk was recorded and is accessible on YouTube:

[publication] Automatic Authentication of Students at an Interactive Learning-Video Platform #tugraz #edil19 #edmedia19 #research

Our publication about „Automatic Authentication of Students at an Interactive Learning-Video Platform“ at this year ED-Media conference in Amsterdam is online available:

There are many reasons for the implementation of authentication on learning platforms. For instance, it is required for the teachers to identify individual students if the learning platform offers some kind of assessment. In addition, authentication is the base for a successful monitoring of the attendance of the students. Compulsory attendance is often applied because many positive effects have been reported by authors of several studies. To monitor the attendance at online videos interactive components can be applied. Another benefit of such interactive components is that they help retain the attention of the students. This study was carried out to examine how the students used a video learning platform which provides interactive components of the videos as part of a course offered at Graz University of Technology. Up until now, a major drawback of this platform has been that the students have been required to register manually on the platform. Now, students are able to use the platform without manual registration and authentication, because these steps happen automatically via the main learning platform that provides all of the course materials. Furthermore, the course design and the application of the interactive components, presenting multiple-choice questions, are evaluated. It is pointed out that the concept improves the performance of the students and equips the teacher with valuable feedback regarding the students‘ interests.

[publication] Professor YouTube and Their Interactive Colleagues How Enhanced Videos and Online Courses Change the Way of Learning #youtube #tugraz #research #edil19 #digitalnatives

Our publication about „Professor YouTube and Their Interactive Colleagues How Enhanced Videos and Online Courses Change the Way of Learning“ at this year ED-Media conference in Amsterdam is online available:

Although, videos for teaching and learning have been established for many years, transferring of knowledge has changed tremendously within the past decade. Students increasingly consume learning content via videos. In this context, the triumph of YouTube in becoming a main source for learning is astonishing. In combination with an increasing use of online courses, videos however, also need to be focused from a didactical perspective. This fact is one out of a couple of interesting results from 2018’s survey amongst first-year students of Graz University of Technology. This survey focuses on the student’s IT preferences and competence; it has been executed annually since 2007. Based on more than 9500 datasets, this long-term survey records changes in ownership of students‘ IT equipment, IT driven communicative behavior, and use of apps as well as social media services over a period of twelve years. One further remarkable result is the very clear rejection of Facebook. Currently, even SMS is more frequently used than Facebook. Thus, it can be stated that Facebook is no longer a major platform for first-year students.
