[keynote] 9th International Conference on Computer Technology Applications (ICCTA 2023) #conference #research

Martin is invited to give a keynote talk at 9th International Conference on Computer Technology Applications (ICCTA 2023) in May 2023. He will give an overview and insights about our running projects on MOOCs, Learning Analytics and Open Educational Resources.

Abstract of the talk:
In this talk the different research fields of MOOCs, Learning Analytics and OER are addressed and brought together. Over a couple of years now, different proponents announcing MOOS or OER or Learning Analytics. Nevertheless, the idea is to put all the research results together and provide it as a service for education, especially in Higher Education.
Using the example from Graz University of Technology the talk will provide insights how we can deal with it in the future based on research findings and hands-on experiences with real student data.

We would be happy if you join us in Vienna next year: [conference website]

With this announcement I would like to wish you merry christmas and a happy, healthy year 2023 – I will be back after my holidays in January 2023. Hopefully we got a little bit of snow in our mountains, because I would love to make some tours with my skis 🙂
Feel free to take a look to my tour descriptions to get an idea what I am taking about: [Link to profile @ Alpenverein]

FNMA – Neues Portal online #fnma

Es freut uns, dass es nach einem Jahr Arbeitszeit gelungen ist, das Portal des Vereins Forum Neue Medien in der Lehre Austria, kurz fnma, in neuem Glanz erstrahlen zu lassen. Darüber hinaus wurde auch das eScience-Portal erfolgreich in die neue Website intergriert um so noch mehr Service für unsere Mitglieder und alle am Thema interessierten Personen bieten zu können.
Viel Spaß also mit dem neuen Portal 🙂

[publication] Does a Citation-Index for Websites Make Sense?

Our publication on “Does a Citation-Index for Websites Make Sense?” in the Global Computer Science Technology Journal (Open Access) is now online available.


The usefulness of external references to websites is a crucial factor of web-monitoring. It is of high general interest whether your website is visited by the estimated target group or not. This publication measures the value of references of websites by bringing the idea of citation- index to web-analytic tools. The approach presented is considering the number and quality of actions a visitor of a specific website does and the time s/he spent on this website as well as the previous website the user is coming from. The combination of these three parameters are expressed by formulas and afterwards visualized by different tools. Finally this approach is tested and discussed on an existing project. It can be concluded that this concept is indeed useful to get a deeper insight whether external websites addressing the intended target group or not.
