Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

Dr. Monica Ward will present a case study from the DCU School of Computing detailing how they managed the change and the types of assessment they adopted. The next speakers will present overviews of the change to online assessment from the students’ perspective. Dr. Linda Amrane-Cooper and Prof. Stylianos Hatzipanagos’ presentation draws from a project at the University of London evaluating the students’ experience of the transition to digital assessment. Then, Dr. Inés Gil-Jaurena will introduce a study undertaken at UNED about the impact of the change in online assessment on student’s performance and perceptions.

Tutors is an professional and intuitive platform for the creation of compelling educational content. It is open source, well documented and now used by upwards of 160 modules at Waterford Institute of Technology. The platform employs the latest thinking in the production of media-rich web content, with a focus on delivering a simple, easy to navigate, elegant and compelling student experience. A central goal of Tutors is to fostering the sense on an online community of learners. These interactions are promoted by a set of non-intrusive measurements (we call TutorsTime) which help students and educators understand the use of the student’s time on a module.

A book chapter was also published as part of the initiative, which can be found here https://reader.tutors.dev/#/talk/wit-hdip-comp-sci-showcase.netlify.app/unit-3/talk-1-course-philosophy/course-philosophy.pdf
