International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on e-Learning (Madeira, Portugal, Jul 1-4, 2016)
In response to the recent trend in maker movement, teachers are learning 3D techniques actively and bringing 3D printing into the classroom to enhance variety and creativity in designing lectures. This study investigates the usage pattern of a 3D modeling software, Qmodel Creator, which is targeted at K-12 students. User logs containing participants' operations were recorded and analyzed. We expect the results to be instrumental to the developers of Qmodel Creator regarding future enhancements of the software. Moreover, by observing operation behaviors of K-12 students, lesson plans for 3D printing can be tailored to fit the needs of users of different education levels.
