Implementation and Evaluation of Digital E-Lecture Annotation in Learning Groups to Foster Active Learning
Grunewald, Franka; Meinel, Christoph
IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, v8 n3 p286-298 Jul-Sep 2015
The use of video lectures in distance learning involves the two major problems of searchability and active user participation. In this paper, we promote the implementation and usage of a collaborative educational video annotation functionality to overcome these two challenges. Different use cases and requirements, as well as details of the implementation, are explained. Furthermore, we suggest more improvements to foster a culture of participation and an algorithm for the extraction of semantic data. Finally, evaluations in the form of user tests and questionnaires in a MOOC setting are presented. The results of the evaluation are promising, as they indicate not only that students perceive it as useful, but also that the learning effectiveness increases. The combination of personal lecture video annotations with a semantic topic map was also evaluated positively and will thus be investigated further, as will the implementation in a MOOC context.
