Give the child a name … AVUS

After the prototype for my research software has been tested and advanced in several iterations I have a more stable release version now. It turns out that speaking about prototypes and iterations is not very catchy, therefore a name need to be coined. I decided to use:

AVUS: Abstrakte Virtuelle Umgebung für Schlaganfalltherapie (Abstract virtual environment for stroke therapy)

Contribution to eL&mL 2011


assessMe - mobile application for Stud.IP ViPs

In the past year I was concerned with a further development of the blended learning concept we use for students of media computer science (see Work and Publications). Our goal was, to enhance the mobile use of the learning material. We developed an application for iPhone and iPod touch users, which allows to solve the online assessments of our learning management system on the mobile devices. It is used for the first time in this semester and usage is monitored. We wrote a paper about the development and the planned evaluation, which was now accepted by eL&mL 2011 conference committee.



Just a short note: my website now starts! You'll find more about me and my research in Osnabrueck on these pages in the coming weeks.
