    How You Used Shrimp This Semester

    The semester is coming to an end - while you are probably busy with your exams at this point, we are evaluating and interpreting your and your fellow students’ interaction data. With these numbers and statistics, we primarily intend to help you to learn more about yourself and your learning behavior. Maybe you consider yourself as some kind of learning type – for example, as someone who likes to annotate a lot. The figures can show you if this is actually the case and help you to maybe adjust your learning methods in the future.

That’s why we started a short midterm survey on SHRIMP a few weeks ago. Here are the results!

Im Rahmen eines LiT Shortcut, eines Kurzworkshops für Lehrende an der Uni Leipzig, erfuhr er von SHRIMP und sah sofort das Potenzial für den eigenen Fachbereich.
