Graphicuss - Temporal Visualisation of Canvas Creation Processes

Tenshi Hara, Anastasia Iljassova, Iris Braun, Felix Kapp

Abstract

The use of graphical models to describe complex topics is very common in teaching, helping students build an adequate model of knowledge presented. Often, students discuss open questions on-line in forums. There backtracking of errors conducted during the creation process is hard to impossible. The individual steps of developing a solution -- the temporal information -- are lost. Graphicuss combines concepts of textual discussion systems and graphical feedback systems. It fosters better discussions and comprehension through access to the temporal information of canvases. Especially self-regulated learning benefits from the addition of temporal information; students' skill acquisition capabilities are amplified. Yet, an intuitive representation of temporal information is still required. Based on image and video processing, we investigated existing metaphors for temporal information. A series of user studies emphasises the differences of the metaphors in varying use-cases and strongly points at a candidate suitable and feasible for PCs as well as mobile devices.
