In this section we present some important facts about our work – what has been done and what is currently going on.
These are the main topics:
21.01.2015 - We got the invitation to present our project at the University of Barcelona in Spain! They have heard about the project during the ICICTE Conference on Kos (Greece) in July last year and wanted to hear more about our work. Marcin and I will go in February to Barcelona.
8.01.2015 – By the end of month another gamified subject will start – this time it will be fully online course for non-residential Computer Science studies. It will be a good occasion to compare the results from different types of courses and versatile groups of students. Newly elaborated selection algorithm will be tested.
30.12.2014 -The year is over and our project will last only for another two months. We did not publish here for a while but it does not mean nothing happened during that time – we were working hard on the concept of ontology and the selection algorithm, courses are going on and we collect the data for further research from them.
17.11.2014 - On the 12 and 13 of November 2014 there was another occasion to present the concept of gamified courses elaborated within the scope of our project. The first Congress of Education Development was held at the University of Economics in Katowice. Brief description of what was presented there could be found in Publications.
11.11.2014 – In Publications section a new link has been placed to the article that was presented during the 8th EDEN Research Workshop held on Oct. 26-28 in Oxford, UK. Those interested in the topics covered during the workshop are strongly encouraged to visit the EDEN website (EDEN 8RW) where the organizers published the proceedings. The access time is limited – it will expire on Dec. 31st.
3.11.2014 - The results of current work in the project were presented at the 8th EDEN Research Workshop in Oxford (26-28.X.2014) curated by Tony Bates, a famous Canadian expert on distance education and e-learning. Two members of our team: Maria Zajac and Marcin Piekarczyk participated. Gathering the opinions and remarks on the design of a sample Moodle course based on gamification and personalization concepts was the main objective of our participation in that event.
