Research

My research is all about the use of web technology, web engineering methods and process models for creation of modern web applications for learning (E-Learning). One substantial research goal is the use of social media to foster self-regulated learning.

This includes in particular the following research areas (and technologies):

  • Web Technologies (semantic web, service-oriented applications, content management, web development frameworks/MEAN and NoSQL DBs/MongoDB)
  • Problem-based Learning (pedagogical models, psychology, learning analytics, peer education)
  • Social Media (social interaction design patterns, social network analysis, big data processing)

Relevant aspects are:

  • Context-Aware Adaptation of Web-Interfaces
    (Responsive Design, 3D and Web, Mobile Web)
  • Learning Goal Identification
    (Visualization and Customization Tools)
  • Adaptation and Personalization of Learn Flow and Work Flow
    (Educational Data Mining, Learning Analysis, Graph Models, Context Awareness and Recommender Systems)
  • Assessment of Learners' Advances & Test Generation
    (Open-format Tasks, Learner Modeling)
  • Learning Group Formation
    (Recommender and Group Formation Algorithms)
