Course Description

The semester topic is: Exploring eLearning and Massive Open Online Courses.

Participants of the course Planning and Conducting HCI Experiments will be chosen first. However, other students are also encouraged to participate in this course. The Bachelor course Mensch-Maschine-Kommunikation / Human-Computer Interaction is recommended.

This course will provide master level students with the opportunity to present and publish results from an actual HCI experiment. The course aims at imparting necessary knowledge and skills to present research results orally as well as writing a scientific publication. Topics covered include: scientific writing, citing in computer science, giving short and concise presentations, structuring papers, preparing and reporting statistical results as well as a primer to statistical analysis for human subject research. This course will communicate these skills on a practical example. Therefore, participating students are encouraged to participate in Planning and Conducting HCI Experiments. We can also provide data from already conducted experiments. One aim is to submit a work-in-progress or poster publication to a conference or workshop. This course will provide opportunities for group work (as far as possible) as well as peer-teaching.

The course language is English. The course is limited to 15 participants.
