The Role of Technology in CSCL: Studies in Technology by Ulrich H. Hoppe, H. Ogata, A. Soller

By Ulrich H. Hoppe, H. Ogata, A. Soller

This ebook relates modern details and verbal exchange applied sciences (ICT) to their particular instructing and studying features, together with how ICT is appropriated for and by way of academic or studying groups. The technological "hot spots" of curiosity during this booklet comprise: groupware or multi-user applied sciences akin to team documents or synchronous co-construction environments, embedded interactive applied sciences within the spirit of ubiquitous computing, and modeling instruments in keeping with wealthy representations.

Augmented and Virtual Reality: Second International Conference, AVR 2015, Lecce, Italy, August 31 - September 3, 2015, Proceedings

This publication constitutes the refereed complaints of the second one overseas convention on Augmented and digital truth, AVR 2015, held in Lecce, Italy, in September 2015. The 32 papers and eight brief papers offered have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from eighty two submissions. The SALENTO AVR 2015 convention brings jointly a group of researchers from academia and undefined, desktop scientists, engineers, and physicians in an effort to percentage issues of perspectives, wisdom, reviews, and medical and technical effects with regards to cutting-edge suggestions and applied sciences on digital and augmented truth purposes for drugs, cultural history, schooling, business sectors, in addition to the demonstration of complicated items and applied sciences.

Example text

As described above an IPoC is automatically added to the PoC-Pool as soon as the learner runs into a cooperative unit as defined by the course structure. When a learner wants to execute the IPoC he or she initiates the group formation process. The system then identifies potential partners which satisfy the requirements for participation. The requirements can be defined as being in the same course and having the same IPoC in the PoC-Pool but not yet executed. Depending on the cooperation mode an additional requirement might be to be online at the moment.

For 42 M. -R. Pfister example, the system could ask those learners first to join the group who have a distance to the IPoC similar to the learner initiating the collaboration. 6. CONCLUSION This paper presents a novel approach to classify cooperative learning activities and to integrate cooperation systematically into web-based courses. The notion of Points of Cooperation (PoC) is introduced, and especially Intended Points of Cooperation (IPoCs) are analysed in more detail. The comparison with traditional web-based training shows a significant increase in possibilities to achieve and convey knowledge, and to apply different methods and media in web-based learning scenarios.

Since IPoCs are defined as knowledge units by the author during the authoring process, cooperative learning becomes an integrated part of each course. However, the actual instantiation of a Point of Cooperation is a non-trivial task: participants need to be selected according to appropriate criteria, matching communication tools have to be activated, the PoC execution has to be controlled in keeping with time and budget constraints, and the results of the cooperation processes need to be handled.
