In order to customize SHRIMP according to our students’ needs and to personalize the platform as well as possible, we try to determine the individual learning type of each user with a short test at the beginning of each semester. We distinguish between four learning types:
Last Friday, November 8, 2019, the SHRIMP team introduced the platform at “5. Tag der Lehre” with the format “Digitale Insel” on the main campus of the University of Leipzig. The focus of this year’s event was on the future of higher education (“Zukunft der Lehre”) - a perfect setting for presenting our current project results and plans.
On Friday, November 8, 2019, the “5. Tag der Lehre” will take place at the University of Leipzig. The event focuses on the exchange on subject-specific and interdisciplinary questions of teaching and learning. We will present SHRIMP, our latest results and insights and the team behind the project. Come over and say hello between 11-12.30 h! The video shows some impressions of last year's event:

The SHRIMP team is happy to announce that we have been able to secure funding from for our next project phase, which will last from now until December 2020, allowing us to build on what we have learned in the previous phases, try out new things and implement new features.
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.
Am 22. Juni hatte der Leiter des SHRIMP Projekts Dr. Sebastian Herrmann die Gelegenheit, die Plattform im Rahmen der Langen Nacht der Wissenschaften im Ägyptischen Museum vorzustellen. Das Projekt weckte viel Interesse, wie ein Voting am Ende bestätigte, als SHRIMP zu dem Interessantesten unter den vorgestellten Projekten gewählt wurde.
Am 19. Juni wurde SHRIMP im Rahmen eines LiT.Shortcut interessierten Lehrenden vorgestellt. Unter dem Titel ...
Am 25. Mai haben wir das SHRIMP Projekt bei einem Didaktik-Workshop im Rahmen der Jahrestagung der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Amerikastudien (DGfA) präsentiert. Ca. 30 Teilnehmende, überwiegend FachdidaktikerInnen, Lehrerinnen und Lehrer und interessierte Mitglieder der DGfA, nahmen die Präsentation zum Thema “Questioning the Authority of the Linear Form?
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!
In this week’s Talk Nerdy to Me, the grand finale, we have not one but two graphs to show! They both relate to analyzing how everyone has been annotating during the semester, and so they provide an interesting window into how we engage with the texts as we read them.
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:
Hey y’all! In this week’s Talk Nerdy to Me we’re going to discuss something a bit different: the cards the fewest distinct readers. That is to say, they’re the cards where the fewest number of specific users have read them. Let’s dive into the data!
As we can clearly see, less than 25 of you have read each of these individual cards, and for some of them it’s less than 20! That’s not too many people.
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:
Talk Nerdy to Me: A (not so) Shrimpy Christmas
Here at SHRIMP we hope everyone had a relaxing and fun Winter Break—we know we did! And we also know that at least a few of you got the best gift on Christmas: the gift of knowledge, for which some of you got the “Nerds on Christmas” badge. Accordingly, this week we wanted to check out how our vacation days affected reading habits.
