The hoou aims at creating scientific and digital learning opportunities for any person interested. It is a platform for collaboration and cooperation, promoting universities’ opening up and coordinating education providers’ cooperative collaboration to design quality-assured, innovative digital learning offers. Following openness and free access to learning content, the hoou contributes to civil society participation and education in the digital age.
The project has the following four central themes:
- New target groups and relevance in civil society
- Learning and collaboration
- Open educational resources
My Role and Contributions
In the hoou project, I was one of the first team members working as a full-stack developer and researcher building the platform’s first iteration. My research focused on understanding how the learners interacted with the platform to improve their individual learning process. Besides contributing to the platform, I worked on a mobile client that collected various context and interaction data from the learners. That data was the input for my research on improving the learning process.
