On Monday, Myse Elmadani presented her ICTG summer project, "Exploring Concept Tagging in Moodle", at the 2009-10 CSSE Summer Research Showcase. This project is part of a bigger ICTG project, intended to extend Moodle using research conducted at ICTG. In this part of the project, Myse developed a Moodle plug-in where teachers can create a list of concept tags (either manually or by importing them from their glossary) to tag each resource or activity. This adds a certain amount of domain knowledge to the system, enabling students to easily find resources relating to a particular concept.
The ICTG welcomes Prof. Benedict du Boulay, who recently arrived in Christchurch as a guest of ICTG, to spend the first semester of 2010 at the Computer Science & Software Engineering Dept (University of Canterbury). Ben is a professor of Artificial Intelligence at the School of Science and Technology at the University of Sussex, UK, with particular research interests in Artificial Intelligence in Education and the Psychology of Programming.
