Busch, Carsten; Claßnitz, Sabine; Selmanagic,, André; Steinicke, Martin – Electronic Journal of e-Learning, 2015
In 2010 1.1 million pupils took private lessons in Germany, with 25% of all German children by the age of 17 having attended paid private lessons at some point in their school career (Klemm & Klemm, 2010). The high demand for support for learning curricular content led us to consider an integrated solution that speeds up both the design of…
