Note-Taking App - Web-Based App
Technology: Apache Flex, R
Description: This Apache Flex based application allowed students to create contextual notes for all media available in e-learning courses. Notes could be added to the text, video and audio components of the courses. The notes would be available both in the eLearning course where the content was located, and also in a repository that allowed the student to review all the notes, return to the precise point where the note was taken, and in the case of video and audio, review the content inside the app. It also allowed the student to output the notes to a PDF file. Extensive data was collected and analyzed using data mining techniques to understand app usage and learning strategies used by students. This application was part of a course awarded an Excellence Award for use of Technology by the Canadian Network of Innovation in Education.
