Abstract

In the last decades, studies about CSCL have flourished in virtual learning contexts. A great deal of visualization tools have been developed with the purpose of improving the participants’ activity in the virtual courses. However, most of them present several limitations such as providing only quantitative, instantaneous information, only referring to concrete short term forum activities, forgetting the fact that online courses might include a variety of spaces and activities in parallel.
A software will be designed for the visual reports of the participants’ online activity in a multi-space and with a chronological criterium in order to facilitate the management of the online course.
The project is carried out in collaboration with members of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya...(+)
