Technology Enhanced Learning Environment

Filed under: Academic Life, Case Studies, Research, Video — armartinell @ 11:22 am

I am about to start one important stage of my research project. which is the development of a learning enviornment for a Statistics lecture for undergraduates. Next week I am going film the lecturer giving some explanations of the course and I am going to carry out a survey about likes and dislikes of the target group. The aim is to develop a user based prototype and to go on the development of the environment and features according to the users’ needs. I will be reporting the weekly progress of this phase.
