Smart teaching technology. Case: e-tutor mathematics in Hasselt University.
Abstract In Hasselt University, students in applied economic sciences experience problems when learning mathematics. Students need to take a preparatory course before entering, but because they have different background and different math attitude they need all different and more personalized guidance in the first year math course. A math e-tutor to assist the students in learning mathematics has been developed. Summary: Lecture capturing is a method for developing online lectures. Life lecture capturing is creating videos of the life lectures Even more advanced is the concept of “lab lecture capturing”, capturing a combination of prepared content (pictures, ppt slides, …) with handwritten content and voice input. UHasselt developed an e-tutor mathematics partly based on this concept. It is delivering online sessions (simulations of the classroom sessions) in parallel to the classroom sessions to support the first year BA applied economics students to learn mathematics.
