The meme of the physical ‘uni-versity’ is changing and moving swiftly, due mostly to virtual technological developments, towards the ‘multi-versity’ where the Higher Education Institute will exist in both the real world and the virtual space. The concern for researchers though is the need to produce metrics that provide evidence of learning in these augmented futures of the virtual institute. This paper will summarise the theoretical and technical progress of two years of research in the development of metrics for evidencing the processes of learning (witnessed as measurements of six cognitive processes and four knowledge dimensions) of participants (N=8) programming robots within a virtual world. The paper will explain the research, its innovative usage of technologies, and how metrics for learning are being uniquely recorded, analysed and interpreted.
These are the slides presented at eCASE&eTECH Tokyo in January 2011 and similarly at NIE, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in March 2011.
