- The focus of the research of the first open position is on attention
metadata: these describe user interactions with a diverse set of
applications and web resources. The basic goal is to gather and process
attention metadata in unobtrusive ways, so as to better understand and
support the actions and goals of the end user across different
applications. In a first phase, the research will focus on the domain
of technology-enhanced learning. Typical applications would be a
personal or shared dashboard, or a recommender service.
- The focus of the research for the second open position is to develop and
validate prototypes of highly responsive technology-enhanced learning
environments, offering breakthrough levels of effectiveness,
flexibility, user-control and mass-individualization. In this project,
we play a significant role in the development of technical
specifications that are the basis for enabling the interoperability and
personalized mashup of learning services.
available immediately. The research will be carried out at the
Department of Computer Science at the K.U.Leuven, in close
collaboration with many of the leading research units on Technology
Enhanced Learning in Europe and worldwide.
The candidate has the following profile:
a) A degree in Computer Science, Informatics or equivalent with a minimum grade of cum laude
b) Interest in technology enhanced learning and metadata.
Because the successful candidate will work as a member of a project group, team spirit is indispensable.
