SHRIMP project coordinator Dr. Sebastian Herrmann held a talk at the second Digital Humanities Day in Leipzig on December 3, 2018. Once again, SHRIMP had the chance to introduce itself as a project at the intersection of digitalization and humanities. Last year's shorter poster presentation was replaced by a longer talk this time.
On November 7, 2018, the SHRIMP team had the opportunity to introduce the platform to the attendees at the "Digitale Inseln zum Ausprobieren" at the University's main campus. This year, the topic at the heart of Tag der Lehre was digitalization in the context of higher learning, making it the ideal forum to introduce SHRIMP.
The semester is finally in full swing and we’re back with some stats! In case you were wondering where the results of the test went that you took before starting out on SHRIMP – here they are, neatly cast into a beautiful chart!Based on the answers you gave in the test, we calculated a profile of scores.
After the conclusion of the #readingsforthebreak, which we took from the Literature and Culture I-list of exemplary texts for each period, we thought it’s time for some statistics. We had some thought provoking conversations about diversity and representation regarding our reading recommendations and this prompted us to take a closer look at the canon, so here it is: #talkcanontome! We have six periods to look at, so let’s dive into it!
This Thursday, the instagram account of the University of Leipzig featured a special guest: Shrimpy! In a series of photos uploaded to their story, a feature that allows for a sequent of posts to disappears after 24 hours, viewers gained an insight into what a day with Shrimpy looked like. Starting with getting up:
This week in Talk Nerdy to Me, we will be discussing a lesser known feature on SHRIMP: bookmarks. They’re a great way to keep in mind cards that might be interesting or important in the future, but also to make sure you remember where you read something important for the next session. Let’s take a look at how you all have been using this function and which cards have received the most bookmarks:
This week in Talk Nerdy to Me, we’re going to look at the reading questions – that neat feature that pops up at the end of sessions, asking you to reflect on what you read and to put it into your own words. Reading questions help you get organized for the seminars as they test whether or not you truly understood what you read, and prepare you for discussing the texts with your peers. While this feature has been steadily used by you all, we can detect quite a bit of fluctuation when we look at the data:
Diese Woche bei “Talk Nerdy To Me“ schauen wir uns die verschiedenen Lerntypen an, die auf SHRIMP zu finden sind. Da es allerlei verschiedene Möglichkeiten gibt, auf SHRIMP mit dem Text zu interagieren – Kommentare, Likes, Annotationen – ist es ganz interessant zu sehen, wie diese Funktionen genutzt werden. Diese Woche analysieren wir, wie viele private Annotationen pro Person in einem Semester gemacht werden. Dazu haben wir den Datensatz des Wintersemesters 15/16 genutzt um ein Diagramm zu erstellen:
Wie bereits angekündigt, dreht sich in dieser Projektphase von SHRIMP alles um Learning Analytics, also die Auswertung von Nutzungsdaten der Plattform. Um dem statistikgeneigten SHRIMP-Leser unsere Erkenntnisse nicht vorzuenthalten, gibt es hier ab jetzt das wöchentliche Installment "Talk Nerdy to Me" zu lesen, in welchem wir unserem inneren Statistik-Nerd frönen.
Diese Woche liegt unser Fokus auf der Anzahl Karten, die pro Tag gelesen wurden:
