Development of a learning diary for a MOOC platform

  1. 1. u www.tugraz.at W I S S E N ◼ T E C H N I K ◼ L E I D E N S C H A F T Development of a learning diary for a MOOC platform 16.01.2020 Institute of Interactive Systems and Data Science 1
  2. 2. Agenda ▪ Problem ▪ Background ▪ Introduction ▪ State of the art ▪ The prototype ▪ Developing the applications ▪ Proof of concept ▪ Conclusion Development of a learning diary for a MOOC platform 2 Institute of Interactive Systems and Data Science 12.01.2020
  3. 3. Problem ▪ Students of the MOOC platform need to view the website to see all courses and events ▪ There is no reminder and compact overview of all events and courses Development of a learning diary for a MOOC platform 3 Institute of Interactive Systems and Data Science 12.01.2020
  4. 4. Hypothesis Development of a learning diary for a MOOC platform 4 Institute of Interactive Systems and Data Science 12.01.2020 ▪ „A mobile learning diary application for a MOOC platform can improve the learning progress of students of the MOOC platform“
