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).

A Concept to Analyze User Navigation Behavior Inside a Recorded Lecture (to Identify Difficult Spots)

Matthias Bauer, Christoph Meinel
In Information Technology Based Higher Education and Training (ITHET), of Information Technology Based Higher Education and Training (ITHET), pages 1-4, 9 2014 IEEE.

Abstract:

This paper provides a brief report of our concept to scan the streaming server's log files in order to identify specific behavior of the users. A distinct form of behavior is the jump-back. Students do it when they watched a scene of a recorded lecture and then watch it again after a short amount of time. So, it can be assumed that this scene is of higher interest because it is either very interesting or hard to understand for the viewer. The knowledge of these found hotspots could be used in order to improve teaching materials such as slides and teaching style. In this paper, we describe how we plan to gather the data, how to analyze it and how the insights can be utilized. It is not only focused on the technological perspective of video-based e-learning but also on the pedagogical view.
