Release of Personalisation Features and Inquiry Learning Apps – Initial Dissemination Level Public Status Final

Abstract : This deliverable presents the initial release of the personalisation features and the inquiry learning apps developed following the specifications presented in D5.1. In terms of personalisation, we present the first release of internationalisation features in Go-Lab. The language of the ILS platform (Graasp) is now propagated to the inquiry learning spaces (ILS) and apps when the apps support the language. To achieve this, the apps make use of the OpenSocial internationalisation specification (see D5.1). Furthermore, through an early prototype of the App Composer, missing translations of apps can be added. This app composer prototype has been integrated with Graasp and is currently being tested before evaluating it with teachers. The design of the recommender system has started, but the implementation did not commence yet. We focused on internationalisation in this early state of the project, since it affects both students and teachers involved in the Phase A evaluations. Next to the work on personalisation, several Inquiry Learning Apps have been designed and implemented, of which some were specified in D1.1 by the pedagogical cluster and in D5.1. We functionally and technically describe the following apps: the Concept Mapper, the Hypothesis Scratchpad, the Questioning Scratchpad, the Experiment Design Tool, the Data Viewer, the Drop File tool, the Resource View app and the Wiki app. Additionally, work has started on the Conclusion Tool. WP3 is currently evaluating several of these apps and is expected to provide insights and feedback on their design and usefulness in D3.2 in M24. Moreover, the pedagogical cluster is refining the theoretical definitions of scaffolding and guidance apps (documented in the internal deliverable G1.3) and together with the pedagogical cluster we are designing new inquiry learning apps that will be documented in D5.5. In order for these apps to communicate with each other we have extended the OpenApp library to enable drag and drop between apps and have implemented the Vault space to allow data storage and exchange between apps. Access to the Vault space is enabled using a JavaScript library that also supports functions for easy user activity logging using the ActivityStreams format (see D5.1). Finally, to integrate Learning Analytics services with the inquiry learning apps, we have devised an activity logging architecture and library. The work of described in this deliverable will continue and the release of the personalisation features and inquiry learning apps will be finalised in D5.5 (M32).
