  2. 2. Prologue It is nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instructions have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry;… It is a very grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty.29.9.2005 Albert Einstein Antti Raike 2/29
  3. 3. Portwine The Research29.9.2005 Antti Raike 3/29
  4. 4. The research • Was carried out between 1999-2004 at the University of Art and Design Helsinki in collaboration with the sign language education unit of Jyväskylä University, Finland.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 4/29
  5. 5. The research • The design research is positioned in the areas of film (art), media, cinematic research, as well as the field of pedagogy.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 5/29
  6. 6. The research • By merging participatory action research and WWW production an Internet based collaborative study concept dealing with cinematic expression entitled, CinemaSense, was developed and produced as part of the research work. • It can be accessed in web form at [].29.9.2005 Antti Raike 6/29
  7. 7. The research • The usability and accessibility of the flexible learning WWW service was observed during web-based courses in cinematic expression during 2001, with the help of a concept survey and network-based communication.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 7/29
  8. 8. Aikido The Aim29.9.2005 Antti Raike 8/29
  9. 9. The aim • was to produce an accessible web- based study product, as well as to clarify, in support of the production, the sign language students’ deepening of knowledge and conceptualization related to the subject of cinematic expression, as well as their collaboration during the web-based course.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 9/29
  10. 10. The aim • is connected to the general aim of inclusion, for a shared and open university, which adapts flexibly to the needs of different students.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 10/29
  11. 11. Antti Raike and Samu HeikkiläTheResearchproblem29.9.2005 Antti Raike 11/29
  12. 12. The research problem • was to solve how to produce an accessible WWW service on cinematic expression, which supports both collaborative web-based learning as well as individual development of knowledge in the field of film.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 12/29
  13. 13. All that jazzTheMethodology29.9.2005 Antti Raike 13/29
  14. 14. The methodology • was based on user-centric and participatory design methods in which, with the help of design research, a service concept for flexible collaborative web-based study of film was developed and the accessible CinemaSense portal was produced.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 14/29
  15. 15. The methodology • The WWW service was tested and developed into an accessible and multi-cultural, art subject, web-based study format with the help of sign language students.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 15/29
  16. 16. The methodology • Thirdly, observations and experiences from the design research were sought for theoretical consilience with the help of constructive and collaborative learning theory, the cognitive sciences and research of cultural evolution.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 16/29

  21. 21. Results 1) Theoretical investigation and description of the design research process as to how to produce a web service and basic level, net-based learning material for the study of cinematic expression.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 21/29
  22. 22. Results 2) The research group participants’ concept maps became more conformed and their concepts became more professional whilst studying cinematic expression in the web- based course.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 22/29
  23. 23. Results 3) By the end of the web- based course the concept maps of the participants had developed from film viewer maps to filmmaker maps.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 23/29
  24. 24. Results 4) The research group traced professional production, designed and developed the subject of a documentary film, organized the production and produced three documentary films.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 24/29
  25. 25. Results 5) The accessible and multi- language CinemaSense v1.0 service and a web- study course concept for flexible art subject studies was produced. The research also increased understanding in interactivity of multi-lingual, web-based study.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 25/29
  26. 26. Results • The results can be applied in the production of multi- modal web courses, interfaces and services that, for their own part, promote inclusion as well as multi- cultural and flexible university study.29.9.2005 Antti Raike 26/29
