Technological concept
MashUp Principle - Use of Widgets




                  http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2EE/mashup_2/
Comparable to iGoogle
Widget


       „Widgets are full-fledged client-side
     applications that are authored using Web
   standards. They are typically downloaded and
   installed on a client machine or device where
         they typically run as stand-alone
       applications outside a Web browser“
                                         Defintion of W3C




         • Follow a W3C Widget Specification
         • Inter-widget Communication supported
First Design
First conceptual ideas

Personalization in foreground

   E.g. own desktop background image, look & feel etc.
   Different UI structures & themes
   Total control of own environment is desired!

Resemblance btw. Real and virtual world

   More than one Personal Desktop vs. An unlimited Desktop
   Free widget arrangement on UI
   Flexible widget dimensions
   Drag & Drop effects vs. simple clicks
   Sharing, collaboration, networking

Ubiquitous PLE

   Mobile and desktop views
PLE Concept (What)

  Unknown to all test users

PLE Workflow (How)

  Not easy to get started with
  Due to unfamiliar concept
  Introduction, tutorials for novel users strongly recommended

PLE Competences

  Self-organization
  Self-cognition
  ….

         A Change from Teacher-Controlled to Coaching
                           needed!
New Conceptual Design: App-like GUI
http://bentleygsa.org/gmo/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/photo.png
Text




 Main new GUI Elements:
Spaces (Personal Desktops)
    Space Management
       Widget Store
         Settings
Space Management
Widget Store
„Slideshare“ Widget (full sized view)
Inter-Widget Communicatioun
CMS widget <=> Exam Planer widget
Main Outcomes of Generation 2.0

  - ... more than 3000 registered users

  - ... about 30% of active users

  - ... observed more activity, resemblance to mobile apps

  - ... learners classify their widgets using spaces

  - ... widgets can send notifications

  - ... Inter-Widget communication actively used.
