LOGO Student Online Counseling Kernel System (SOCKS) Based on Learning Behavior and Test Performance Chakkrit Snae, PhD Department of Computer Science and Information Technology Naresuan University
Agenda Introduction E-learning, Online Course, LMS, Computer Assisted Counseling Educational Counseling System Framework of SOCKS a description of the important system modules the student and teacher modules Examples of Results the results of the system evaluation by the users are presented and briefly discussed. Conclusion and Further Work 2
E-learning Learning with the assistance of computers Standalone Networked Web based Online courses Distance learning Client/Server system Using learning contents Evaluation of learning results Counseling Evaluation of the e-learning course 3
Online courses... are web based learning materials, need Learning Management System, and (LMS) Learning Content Management System (LCMS)... are used for offering materials anytime, anywhere and at any place 4
Learning Management Systems Software tools to manage learning interventions by users (instructors and students) Some functions: Registration Training workflow Computer assisted assessment Teaching and learning resource management 5
Computer Assisted Counseling... Is done for various areas Health care Health assistance Physical activity Education Human based counseling with computers Using and webcam Automatic computer assisted counseling 6
Conceptual Framework of an Educational Counseling System
The Student Online Counseling Kernel System (SOCKS) designed as a Web-based system with LMS and Four Basic Processes: Monitoring Process - individual students learning behavior, i.e. time spent on learning units, Prediction Process for the students learning outcome Resulting Counseling process Evaluation of the counseling process.
Automatic Computer Assisted Counseling... Uses the individual learning behaviour Time spent in learning units Time spent for studying multimedia sources Time needed in quizzes and tests... Uses learning results Results from quizzes related to learning behaviour Results from mid term test 9
System Framework of SOCKS 10
Design and Implementation: SOCKS 2 main parts of SOCKS Implementation Student Part Teacher Part
Student Interface Change Password: changing student passwords - every three months, Login Statistics: checking attendance of students in the course, Student Statistics: checking student behavior of learning course Suggestion-Feedback: giving feedback and suggestions to students or identifying what to consult or suggest and how, Assessment Result: assessing how much the student knows and how well and to decide where and how much help is needed, Logout from the system.
Login Static Model IP refers to the regular seat/computer that students must use for learning. ATT is for marking attendance, ST and FT are starting and finishing times of learning TOTAL is for keeping the overall mark of attendance. The marks of attendance are based on time constrain, 1 means you log in and learn within the time limit (10:00 to 11:50) 0.5 means students are less than 30 minutes late (10:20) 0 means students are more than 30 minutes late (10:35) or absent.
Assessment Result Module To evaluate how well a student has done To help students drawing conclusions for the learning improvement and purpose using appropriate response parameters as follows: Very wellno action Wellwhenever get a chance, review related concepts Not so wellgive exercises Not wellreview concepts, exercises Not at allteach Forgottenreview, no exercise
Teachers Interface: teachers and the administrators Change Password: changing teacher passwords -every three months, Student List: checking the number of students attending the course, Student Short Information: checking necessary student information, Inbox-Feedback List: getting feedback and suggestions from students, Assessment Result: assessing how much the student knows (and how well) and to decide where and how much help is needed, Message to Student: creating and sending messages to students, Student Statistics: checking student behavior of learning course, Logout from the system. Add Subjects, Add Chapters and Add Exam are also on this page.
Examples of Student Statistics: Checking student behavior of learning in the course time spent on TST-TSG, TSV, TSO, and quizzes for each chapter. recognizes the lessons and chapters that a student has already studied during the course. shows times that students spent and post-test after learning in each lesson. The threshold is up to check a minimum of time that student should spend in each chapter The minimum of time is computed by the average of times that all students spend in each chapter. If the student spend less time than the threshold and the marks of quizzes are less than standard then the students are advised to revise each lesson at the end of lesson otherwise they will not allow to take mid-term examination.
Conclusion We have presented the modules and some results of a design research on SOCKS Counseling based on learning behaviour and of learning outcome Assistance for e-learning courses tests have been carried out during an e-learning course on Software Engineering with 120 participants. 17
Future Work Enable a social network of learning into SOCKS, in which peers and instructors work together Improvement on Quiz and Tests should be classified into type of examination analysis, memorizing, understanding, or mixed between them to develop the system to keep all data of tests, e.g. which answers of multiple choices that students chose the most or which questions most students answered correctly. Grade predictions based on attendance, post test, quiz, and mid-term test have to be implemented.
