Location-based services for technology enhanced learning and teaching
Location-based services for technology enhanced learning and teaching is a 2012 conference paper written in English by Rensing C., Tittel S., Steinmetz R. and published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (including subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics).
Learning does not only take place in a conventional classroom setting but also during everyday activities such as field trips. The increasing availability of mobile devices and network access opens up new possibilities for providing location-based services which support for such learning scenarios. In this paper, we argue the need for providing context aware services for authors of learning content as well as for learners. We present two scenarios and new services which fit to these scenarios. The first is an extension of docendo, an open learning content authoring and management platform, to support teachers while creating location-based learning material for field trips. Second service is a mobile application which allows learners to participate in the creation of learning resources by writing a wiki article and retrieve learning modules from a semantic MediaWiki using a facetted search. Learner location is one search parameter within the search.
