I love my Kindle as much as I am able to love a physical object, and I honestly prefer reading in a Kindle than reading a “real” book. Ever since the first time I ever heard the idea of e-readers, I already knew that I would love them, and it never even crossed my mind […]
From September 18th to 20th, I had the opportunity to join the Eight European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL 2013), in Paphos, Cyprus. While the main discussions were not directly related to my own research at the moment, it was certainly productive to hear what is going on in the field of TEL, to […]
As I mentioned previously, I participated in the Eight European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL 2013), in Paphos, Cyprus. I helped on the organization of the Tutorial on Seamless Assessment in SGs, offered by partners of the GaLA project.
