eMadrid: R&D Network on educational technology in the Region of Madrid (S2013/ICE-2715)
Remote and virtual laboratories
Thursday, 27 August 2015

One of the objectives of eMadrid network are remote and virtual laboratories. In this line of research we try to take another step forward in the state of the art so students, teachers and institutions can create, reuse, combine and federate remote and virtual laboratories, promoting interoperability between architectures. In addition, we provide greatly motivating laboratories that can be used in any type of institution requiring improved practical skills for better business development (both large, medium and small companies) and development on different devices and environments (college, university, company, lifelong learning, including specific issues for people with disabilities).

Serious games and simulations
Friday, 14 August 2015

One of the objectives of eMadrid Network are serious games y simulations. Thus, the main challenges facing current research on serious games for education, defined as an umbrella term encompassing not only games but also other highly interactive technologies, such as simulations, are addressed. In addition, we seek to facilitate the adoption of serious games, whose penetration in education is still limited, trying to improve the reliability of the methods used to evaluate the effectiveness of serious games.

Ubiquitous learning and supported on mobile devices
Sunday, 09 August 2015

One of the objectives of eMadrid network is "Ubiquitous learning and supported on mobile devices". As part of this objective, mlearning applications prototypes are developed by creating learning solutions through mobile devices that integrate other technologies of the project, as learning analytics and serious games; prototypes of augmented reality applications are researched and developed; and pilot applications and prototypes in non-university environments are made, as well as in both formal and informal learning environments.

Learning environments and MOOCs
Wednesday, 29 July 2015

One of the objectives of eMadrid network is "Learning environments and MOOCs", which involves several lines of research related to learning environments, particularized through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), which have brought a revolution both in higher education and in vocational training environments in the last years. As part of this objective, technological and educational solutions to the main challenges for the adoption of MOOCs as a complement to higher education will be explored and provided.

Authoring and reuse
Tuesday, 21 July 2015

One of the objectives and lines of research of eMadrid network is "authoring and reuse", which is focus on deepening the semi-automatic semantic tagging with technologies based on semantic web in close coordination with the work on "Open educational resources, free software and open data", for the development of new mechanisms for OER search and retrieval based on the semantic description of these educational resources as well as in the framework of interoperability through Linked Data.

Educational technology present and future
Thursday, 16 July 2015

eMadrid project is divided in 10 lines of research, each of them with specific scientific and technical objectives. These lines of research are aligned with the topics of particular importance in the short and medium term on educational technology.

Along the following months we will publish a weekly post to explain in detail how each of the eMadrid network goals is addressed. In this first post, Carlos Delgado Kloos, the project coordinator, presents a general vision of the beneficiary groups and the activities of the network.

Meeting of the IEEE Education Society Spanish Chapter and conferences by ANECA and Rob REILLY
Monday, 15 June 2015

On 7 July a meeting of the IEEE Education Society Spanish Chapter will be held at the Paraninfo of the Rector in the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.

On this occasion, we will have the opportunity to know some details of the changes on the evaluation of teachers by Demetrio Castro, Coordinator of Teacher Evaluation of the ANECA, and will also have Rob Reilly, MIT & IEEE Division VI Director.

ANALYSE, a learning analytics tool for open edX designed at UC3M, has been released
Monday, 15 June 2015

A new learning analytics tool developed for the Open edX MOOC platform, named ANALYSE, has been released as open source. ANALSYE has been designed and developed at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and several eMadrid members have been involved in it. The main people involved in the design and development of ANALYSE have been Héctor Pijeira Díaz, Javier Santofimia Ruiz, José A. Ruipérez Valiente, Pedro J. Muñoz-Merino and Carlos Delgado Kloos.

ANALYSE transforms low level data into useful indicators about the learning process. In addition, ANALYSE provides useful visualizations for teachers and students using these indicators. You can find more information about ANALYSE at http://www.it.uc3m.es/pedmume/ANALYSE/

Report for the Spanish TV (TVE) of the mapaTIC project, in which members of eMadrid (UC3M) collaborate
Monday, 15 June 2015

Last Wednesday 10 June, the Spanish TV (TVE) published a TV report about the mapaTIC project. The mapaTIC project is funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports, and aims at improving the learning process for Adult High School Education. The project is coordinated by Diego Redondo Martínez (Director of CEPA Sierra Norte). The main partners of the mapaTIC project are three High School centres: CEPA Sierra Norte, CFA Palau de Mar and CFA M. Dolors Paul.
