Reflection template_1
You could use templates to begin the process of reflection. Here is a two stage template you can modify for your own use; Stage 1: A very personal consideration of events etc. You may only want to keep this for yourself to see. Stage 2: Translating your feeling and thoughts into a record that can be shown to others together with extended analysis. The entries do not need to be large but related to the topic.

The OTTER Sami tent OER
This is a reproduction of the Second Life Sami tent and is for free distribution within Second Life as a repurposable OER. It is available in two clearly identified forms: 1. As a single SL artefact, where all discrete items have been linked together to make a whole. 2. As a number of discrete SL artefacts. In addition, this OER includes two SL training guides: one for students and one for tutors. Users are encouraged to first read the 'Handout for the Sami tent OER' .

A Bayesian Student Model without Hidden Nodes and Its Comparison with Item Response Theory
The Bayesian framework offers a number of techniques for inferring an individual's knowledge state from evidence of mastery of concepts or skills. A typical application where such a technique can be useful is Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT). A Bayesian modeling scheme, POKS, is proposed and compared to the traditional Item Response Theory (IRT), which has been the prevalent CAT approach for the last three decades. POKS is based on the theory of knowledge spaces and constructs item-to-item gra

Conceptual Physics
This is a nonmathematical physics textbook, designed so that it can be used either for a semester-length course of the type popularized by Hewitt, or for a shorter course of 8 or 10 weeks. This book is essentially a rewritten version of Discover Physics. The rewrite is intended to do two things: (1) make the book less closely tied to a particular method of teaching, and (2) make it possible to use the book in shorter courses (such as Fullerton College's Physical Science 103A) with the omission o

Studying participation networks in collaboration using mixed methods
This paper describes the application of a mixed-evaluation method, published elsewhere, to three different learning scenarios. The method defines how to combine social network analysis with qualitative and quantitative analysis in order to study participatory aspects of learning in CSCL contexts. The three case studies include a course-long, blended learning experience evaluated as the course develops; a course-long, distance learning experience evaluated at the end of the course; and a synchron

Towards adaptable interaction analysis tools in CSCL
Interaction analysis has become a basic function in the field of collaborative learning as a means for supporting evaluation processes. These processes can benefit from the use of automatic or semi -automatic interaction analysis tools . If these tools considered the different roles implied in the analysis processes, this could permit to exploit the results of the analysis in function of who is the user and what is his/her purpose. The experience of awareness systems in CSCW that use roles to de

In recent years the two disciplines of Information and Library Studies and Computing Science have drawn closer together to the extent that now there are several Universities where they are combined in a single school of Information and Computing Science or Informatics. Currently, a single Higher Education Academy Subject Centre serves the two disciplines.
