My students and shared resources: Design of a supervision tool

  1. 1. My students and shared resources: Design of a supervision tool Feliz Gouveia, Universidade Fernando Pessoa Luís Borges Gouveia, Universidade Fernando Pessoa Nuno Fernandes, Universidade Fernando Pessoa
  2. 2. Plan • The need for a supervision tool • Choices within Sakai • Design choice • Tool implementation • Demo • Future developments March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 2
  3. 3. The need for a supervision tool • Sakai is heavily used for research and collaboration • Student supervision is usually done with project sites (one site per student) • There is a lack of a global and uniform view of the supervision process • Supervision actors are students, instructors and administrative staff and external staff March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 3
  4. 4. Choices within Sakai • Use project sites: • Must be created by instructors • Typically they are all different • Manuals, guidelines must be replicated for every site • Use Checklist tool: • One site per student • Difficult to adapt to local needs March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 4
  5. 5. Design choice (I) • A new tool • Allowing student, instructor, administrative and degree director’s view • Allowing shared resources: • For students with the same supervisor • For students in the same degree • For students in the same school/department • Allowing different workflows, per degree March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 5
  6. 6. Design choice (II) • A degree director has a site with information about all students in that degree • A supervisor has a site with all her students • A student sees the supervisor site • Resources can be shared hierarchically March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 6
  7. 7. Tool implementation (I) • There are 4 different tools: • Management site: • Create workflows • Choose school/dept director, and create the site • School/dept site: Director’s view • Choose degree director and administrative staff • Choose degree workflow • Upload resources for all degrees • View/edit student’s progress March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 7
  8. 8. Tool implementation (II) • School/dept site: Degree director’s view • Assign supervisors to students • View/edit student’s progress • School/dept site: Administrative view • View/edit student’s progress March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 8
  9. 9. Tool implementation (III) • Supervision site: Instructor’s view • Use site tools (Resources, Announcements, …) • View/edit student’s progress • Supervision site: Student’s view • Use site tools (Resources, Announcements, …) • View/edit own progress March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 9
  10. 10. Tool implementation (IV) • Supervision data is fed by the SIS • Tool written in Javascript + REST • Resource sharing done via custom Content Hosting Handler (CHH) March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 10
  11. 11. Demo: Management site March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 11
  12. 12. Demo: School/Dept site March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 12
  13. 13. Demo: Supervision site (I) Instructor’s view March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 13
  14. 14. Demo: Supervision site (II) Instructor and student view March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 14
  15. 15. Demo: Synoptic view March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 15
  16. 16. Future developments • Generate report and statistics about supervision progress • Allow for custom workflows by instructors March 2010 European Sakai Conference – Valencia - Spain.. 16
