  • Lehrstuhl Informatik 5 (Information Systems) Prof. Dr. M. Jarke 14 This paper presents rhythm reading, one of the elementary ear training exercises, as a pedagogical software application of PWGL. We use different kinds of stochastic and mathematical models to generate a rhythmic database. The database is divided into several categories, including, binary or ternary, euclidian, afro-cuban, corpus-based, and contemporary. Our musical constraints systems is used to define a rule set, which, in turn, can be used to automatically generate graded rhythm reading exercises. The user is then presented with a musical score, and he or she can perform a reading with any percussive instrument or voice and a microphone connected to a computer. Our novel signal processing system is utilized to analyze the reading. Finally, visual feedback and statistics are displayed directly as a part of the exercise. In this paper we present our rhythm reading application, and discuss the details of its implementation.

ICWL 2010 Workshops (pp. 195-206) Springer Verlag This paper proposes a strategy to personalized the Internet searching, which would help to filter, extract and integrate the massive information from the web based on the specific user requirements in the hopes that it can relieve them from the tedious process of manually selecting and retrieving the relevant information as well as the confusion caused by the inconsistencies of the information. The strategy proposed in this paper has been applied to the searching of the laptop product information and the result shows a much less human effort involved and a much more accurate price range. part of the solution descriptive informative

EC-TEL 2013, pp. 5-18 [best full paper] Springer Verlag informative informative mixed descriptive MOOCs have been a disruptive educational trend in the last months. Some MOOCs just replicate traditional teaching pedagogies, adding multimedia elements like video lectures. Others go beyond, trying to engage the massive number of participants by promoting discussions and relying on their contributions to the course. MOOC platforms usually provide some built-in social tools for this purpose, although instructors or participants may suggest others to foster discussions and crowdsourcing. This paper analyses the impact of two built-in (Q&A and forum) and three external social tools (Facebook, Twitter and MentorMob) in a MOOC on educational technologies. Most of the participants agreed on the importance of social tools to be in touch with their partners and share information related to
