Vision of the tele-TASK Project

In the center of the research work of Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel and his team in the field of Knowledge Engineering and Web University is the tele-TASK project (tele-Teaching Anywhere Solution Kit). It was started more than 15 years ago when we began to research how Internet and web technologies can be used for supporting teaching (> tele-teaching) and learning (> e-learning). Our vision was to design an easy to use mobile system for recording and broadcasting university lectures and presentations over the Internet in order to develop and test on the one hand new tele-teaching and e-learning concepts and on the other hand to innovative portal and navigation techniques.

Our Research Directions

Over the years tele-TASK turned out to be a very fruitful project which helped us, on one side, to gain valuable experiences and a deeper understanding of e-learning and tele-teaching. On the other side, it inspires us to try our upcoming techniques in the are of Web3.0 - semantic, social, service Web -, and to make them accessible for Web-university (details).

Abstract:

We have addressed the problems of independent e-lecture learning with an approach involving collaborative learning with lecture recordings. In order to make this type of learning possible, we have prototypically enhanced the video player of a lecture video platform with functionality that allows simultaneous viewing of a lecture on two or more computers. While watching the video, synchronization of the playback and every click event, such as play, pause, seek, and playback speed adjustment can be carried out. We have also added the option of annotating slides. With this approach, it is possible for learners to watch a lecture together, even though they are in different places. In this way, the benefits of collaborative learning can also be used when learning online. Now, it is more likely that learners stay focused on the lecture for a longer time (as the collaboration creates an additional obligation not to leave early and desert a friend). Furthermore, the learning outcome is higher because learners can ask their friends questions and explain things to each other as well as mark important points in the lecture video.
