  4. 4. 4 Introduction Motivation students are benefiting from attending classes students who are attending all units of a course are prone to receive a better grade at videos students are typically passive listeners Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  5. 5. 5 Introduction Monitoring the Attendance in Standard Class- room Situations a list which is handed from student to student in the lecture theatre and has to be signed by each attending student ARS: use the list of answering students as a proof for their attendance Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  6. 6. 6 Introduction Research Question introduce and evaluate a possibility to monitor the attendance of students at compulsory learning-videos by using interactive components RQ: How to use interactivity to assess the performance of students at learning videos? Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  7. 7. 7 LIVE: Interactive Video Platform Attendance Monitoring registered and authenticated users for each student who attends a video the following values are recorded Absolute time of joining (e.g. 2016-12-11 13:45:27) Relative time of joining (e.g. 00:00) Absolute time of leaving (e.g. 2016-12-11 13:48:49) Relative time of leaving (e.g. 03:22) Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017

  10. 10. 10 LIVE: Interactive Video Platform User Details Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  11. 11. 11 LIVE: Interactive Video Platform Interactive Components different methods of interaction: automatically asked questions and captchas asking questions to the lecturer asking text-based questions to the attendees multiple-choice questions at pre-defined positions analysis features for the teacher Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  12. 12. 12 LIVE: Interactive Video Platform Video is Interrupted by a MC-Question Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  13. 13. 13 LIVE: Interactive Video Platform Multiple-Choice Question Analysis Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  14. 14. 14 Research Design Setting course: “Building Materials Basics” second semester bachelor program for “Civil Engineering Sciences and Construction Management” practical demonstrations 304 Students divided in 17 groups each group is responsible for one demonstration members of the other groups are forced to watch video recordings of all demonstrations Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  15. 15. 15 Research Design Flow of Events Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  16. 16. 16 Results Number of Students 50 students who didn’t even start to watch the videos number of fully watching students has a decreasing tendency at the later videos not very many students watched the videos more often than once Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  17. 17. 17 Results 50 Students Missing 304 registered students, only approximately 250 started watching the videos missing students are the same at each video no technical problems simply not interested in successfully finishing the lecture Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  18. 18. 18 Results Decreasing Number of Fully Watching Students early leaving students first six videos: less or equal to 7 last video: 26 most of the students watched one video directly after another it was not possible to maintain the attention of the students long enough so that they started leaving earlier Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  19. 19. 19 Results Re-Watching Students Numbers: first and last video: above 60 other videos: max. 20 get the task of watching done videos are well-made first and last video: testing Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  20. 20. 20 Results Multiple-Choice Questions Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  21. 21. 21 Results Acceptance of Attendance Monitoring Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  22. 22. 22 Results Student’s Comments “I like interactive videos because with the help of the questions I am able to watch the videos actively.” “I don’t have to go to the lab for all demonstrations because of the videos with attendance monitoring.“ “The interactive components are stopping me from watching the videos faster.” Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  23. 23. 23 Outlook & Conclusion Outlook analysis of the long-term learning success ensuring that the students are watching the videos by themselves cryptography (e.g. digital signature) authentication process linked to the official student management system of the university Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
  24. 24. 24 Outlook & Conclusion Conclusion an approach to monitor the attendance of students at videos is introduced a web-platform records the time of watching of each individual student and adds some interactive components the web-platform worked in an acceptable way and the majority of students liked the approach same accuracy as in a standard classroom situation where a list has to be signed to confirm the attendance Josef Wachtler and Martin Ebner , Educational Technology - TU Graz EDMEDIA 2017
