    Visualizing Quantified Self Data Using Avatars2016In: ACHI 2016: The Ninth International Conference on Advances in Computer-Human Interactions / [ed] Alma Leora Culén, Leslie Miller, Irini Giannopulu, and Birgit Gersbeck-Schierholz, International Academy, Research and Industry Association (IARIA), 2016, p. 57-66Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, it is becoming more common for people to use applications or devices that keep track of their activities, such as fitness activities, places they visited, the music they listen to, and pictures they took. These data are used by the services for various purposes, but usually there are limitations for the users to explore or interact with them. Our project investigates a new approach of visualizing such Quantified Self data, in a meaningful and enjoyable way that gives the users insights into their data. The paper discusses the feasibility of creating a service that allows users to connect the activity tracking applications they already use, analyse the amount of activities, and then presents them the resulting information. The visualization of the information is proposed as an avatar that maps the different activities the user is engaged with, along with the activity levels, as graphical features. Within the scope of this work, several user studies were conducted and a system prototype was implemented to explore how to build, using web technologies, such a system that aggregates and analyses personal activity data, and also to determine what kind of data should and can be collected, to provide meaningful information to the users. Furthermore, it was investigated how a possible design for the avatar could look like, to be clearly understood by the users.

    Contextualization of Mobile Learners2015In: Mobile Learning: Trends, Attitudes and Effectiveness / [ed] Mohamed Hamada, Nova Science Publishers, Inc., 2015, p. 39-54Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter describes our current research efforts related to the contextualization of learners in mobile learning activities. Substantial research in the field of mobile learning has explored aspects related to contextualized learning scenarios. However, new ways of interpretation and consideration of contextual information of mobile learners are necessary. This chapter provides an overview regarding the state of the art of innovative approaches for supporting contextualization in mobile learning. Additionally, we provide the description of the design and implementation of a flexible multi-dimensional vector space model to organize and process contextual data together with visualization tools for further analysis and interpretation. We also present a study with outcomes and insights on the usage of the contextualization support for mobile learners. To conlcude, we discuss the benefits of using contextualization models for learners in different use-cases. Moreover, a description is presented in order to illustrate how the proposed contextual model can easily be adapted and reused for different use-cases in mobile learning scenarios and potentially other mobile fields.

    Flexible and Contextualized Cloud Applications for Mobile Learning Scenarios2016In: Mobile, Ubiquitous, and Pervasive Learning: Fundaments, Applications, and Trends / [ed] Alejandro Peña-Ayala, Springer Publishing Company, 2016, p. 167-192Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter describes our research efforts related to the design of mobile learning (m-learning) applications in cloud-computing (CC) environments. Many cloud-based services can be used/integrated in m-learning scenarios, hence, there is a rich source of applications that could easily be applied to design and deploy those within the context of cloud-based services. Here, we present two cloud-based approaches—a flexible framework for an easy generation and deployment of mobile learning applications for teachers, and a flexible contextualization service to support personalized learning environment for mobile learners. The framework provides a flexible approach that supports teachers in designing mobile applications and automatically deploys those in order to allow teachers to create their own m-learning activities supported by mobile devices. The contextualization service is proposed to improve the content delivery of learning objects (LOs). This service allows adapting the learning content and the mobile user interface (UI) to the current context of the user. Together, this leads to a powerful and flexible framework for the provisioning of potentially ad hoc mobile learning scenarios. We provide a description of the design and implementation of two proposed cloud-based approaches together with scenario examples. Furthermore, we discuss the benefits of using flexible and contextualized cloud applications in mobile learning scenarios. Hereby, we contribute to this growing field of research by exploring new ways for designing and using flexible and contextualized cloud-based applications that support m-learning.

    A Web-based Reference Architecture for Mobile Learning: Its Quality Aspects and Evaluation2017In: 2017 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE WORKSHOPS (ICSAW), IEEE, 2017, p. 232-237Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses the development process and evaluation of a reference software architecture within the field of mobile learning. The architecture implements the workflow of preparation - activity - analysis & reflection of (data collection) activities supported by mobile applications. A number of challenges, like portability, flexibility, or expandability are important to address in mobile learning. To overcome the mentioned challenges in this field, we are proposing a web-based architecture that is supposed to serve as a foundation for the development of software solutions in the field of mobile learning. We discuss scenario descriptions needed for the evaluation and present three implementations in this field that serve as candidate architectures. With the support of those candidates, the reference architecture is proposed. Important system quality attributes are identified and then applied for an evaluation of the architecture using the SAAM method. We conclude by discussing that the proposed architecture does not only fit the field of mobile learning but can also be adapted to a general solution regarding the workflow of: preparation - activity - analysis & reflection of mobile (data collection) applications.

    The (still) unused potential of mobile HTML5 in educational settings2016In: Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Computers in Education, Nov. 28-Dec 2, 2016, Bombay, India, Mumbai, India: Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education, 2016, p. 392-397Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The wide availability of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets among students as well as the included positioning technologies, high definition cameras and other sensors, together with continuous Internet access bring many new opportunities for developing mobile applications supporting learning activities. However, there is an immense fragmentation of operating systems for mobile devices. HTML5 is a promising approach to tackle this challenge. Mobile web applications run within browsers and nowadays, most mobile devices possess a browser that interprets HTML5. Nevertheless, the educational domain seems to ignore this potential and relies on the development of native applications. In this paper, we analyze the opportunities, advantages and drawbacks of developing mobile applications supporting learning activities with HTML5 compared with developing them natively. To illustrate our ideas, we present a couple of showcases that already rely on HTML5, which allow us to further review the development opportunities for mobile HTML5 applications in general, as well as specifically in educational settings.

    Towards a web-based framework to support end-user programming of mobile learning activities2014In: 2014 IEEE 14th International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies (ICALT), IEEE Press, 2014, p. 204-208Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes the design and development stages of a web-based framework, aiming to support the creation of mobile applications within the context of mobile learning. The suggested approach offers the opportunity to deploy and execute these applications on mobile devices. This web-based solution additionally offers the possibility to visualize the data collected by the mobile applications in a web- browser. Despite previous research efforts carried out in this domain, few of the projects have addressed these processes from a purely web-based perspective. Currently, a prototype of an authoring tool for creating mobile data collection applications is already implemented. In order to integrate and validate this solution in everyday educational settings, we are collaborating with a network of high schools. On the basis of workshops with teachers we will carry out, refinements and requirements for further enhancements will be collected and will be used to guide our coming efforts.

    mLearn4web: A web-based framework to design and deploy cross-platform mobile applications2014In: Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia, New York: ACM Press, 2014, p. 252-255Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a web-based framework that allows the creation and deployment of mobile learning activities. We present an authoring tool that allows not-technically skilled persons to design mobile learning tasks and deploy them as a web-based mobile application. Since the presented approach is based exclusively on web-technologies, the deployed mobile application can be executed via a mobile browser and therefore is platform independent. Despite previous research efforts carried out in this domain, few of the projects have addressed this course of actions from a purely web-based perspective. Through the latest development of web technologies, mobile applications have access to internal sensors like camera, microphone and GPS and therefore allow data collection within web-applications. In order to validate whether the proposed framework can be applied in educational settings, we conducted a pilot study with experienced teachers and present the results of these efforts in this paper.

    A web-based framework to design and deploy mobile learning activities: Evaluating its usability, learnability and acceptance2015In: 2015 IEEE 15th International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies (ICALT), IEEE Press, 2015, p. 88-92Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses the efforts carried out related to the design and development of a web-based framework that allows designing, deploying and executing mobile data collecting applications. Furthermore, it also allows analyzing and presenting the data that is generated during the mentioned process. The fact that the framework is completely web-based provides a platform independent execution of the mobile application on any mobile device with a web-browser. As a result that the whole life-cycle of creating, executing and discussing a mobile learning activity is implemented in pure web-based manner separates this work from similar efforts. In the course of this work, the current state of development of two of the components, the authoring tool and the mobile application is presented. This framework was introduced to teachers in an activity to follow up an initial study. On the basis of a workshop with teachers, we performed an explorative study regarding the technology acceptance and usability of two components of the proposed framework. The results are discussed and analyzed in this paper.

    Toward an Adaptive and Adaptable Architecture to Support Ubiquitous Learning Activities2016In: Mobile, Ubiquitous, and Pervasive Learning: Fundaments, Applications, and Trends / [ed] Alejandro Peña-Ayala, Springer, 2016, p. 193-222Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The continuous evolution of learning technologies combined with the changes within ubiquitous learning environments in which they operate result in dynamic and complex requirements that are challenging to meet. The fact that these systems evolve over time makes it difficult to adapt to the constant changing requirements. Existing approaches in the field of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) are generally not addressing those issues and they fail to adapt to those dynamic situations. In this chapter, we investigate the notion of an adaptive and adaptable architecture as a possible solution to address these challenges. We conduct a literature survey upon the state of the art and state of practice in this area. The outcomes of those efforts result in an initial model of a Domain-specific architecture to tackle the issues of adaptability and adaptiveness. To illustrate these ideas, we provide a number of scenarios where this architecture can be applied or is already applied. Our proposed approach serves as a foundation for addressing future ubiquitous learning applications where new technologies constantly emerge and new requirements evolve.
