Collaborative E-Learning through Open Social Student Modeling and Progressive Zoom Navigation
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractStudents usually do not study individually; instead, they tend to study collaboratively. The “power of known peers” can be embraced to provide implicit navigation support for collaborative social e-learning environments. In this paper, we present a novel approach to collaborative e-learning through open social student modeling and Progressive Zoom navigation support. Progressive Zoom is a Google-Maps paradigm which seeks to address information overload issues. It enables students to zoom in or out in a multi-layer fashion, so students can reflect their individual and peer progress based on the knowledge and pedagogical context. In our initial survey, all students are satisfied with the navigation interface and would like to recommend the interface to their classmates.
