Elena Soldatova, Ursula Bach, Rene Vossen, Sabina Jeschke

Abstract


Studies show that Learning Management Systems at university level often are lacking necessary for teaching staff member features such as support of various didactical approaches, consideraion of different specifics of engineering disciplines, user-friendly interface. In this paper, a new recommender system aimed at teaching staff of engineering disciplines who wish to use E-Learning tools in their courses is proposed. The system will take into consideration the level of user experience, assess the elements of a teaching scenario and provide guidlines on the contents of the particular element with regards of the engineering specifics. As a result a lecturer should be able to create his E-Learning course that then will be running as a course within the university LMS. The novelty of the recommender system is that criteria used by the system are based on standards for engineering education in conjunction with the framework for pedagogical evaluation of Virtual Learning Environments.
