An educational dashboard summarizes and visualizes various information that can be useful to support the learner in the learning process and the teacher in the teaching process.
(Jonassen, Peck, & Wilson, 1999:22 cited by Keengwe et al., 2008).
“A challenging task for most, if not all instructors, is the task of trying to gauge student interest and learning during the course of a lecture. Under current approaches, it is very difficult to understand how well the students are grasping the lecture while the lecture is in progress.” (Peiper, 2009).
Brown et al. (2006), within the framework of the Open Learning Initiative implemented an Instructor Digital Dashboard.
Knowledge organization cockpits
Simulation and laboratory cockpits
The eMersion project aims at providing a Web-based environment that supports hands-on experimentation through remote manipulation of physical laboratory devices and/or computer simulation tools. “We have developed the Cockpit environment, which is currently used in Automatic Control, Fluid Mechanics and Biomechanics courses at the School of Engineering, EPFL. The environment provides the student with the possibility to carry out experimentation in a flexible way, i.e. students can follow different learning modalities (Sire, Nguyen & Gillet 2003) to perform multi-session experiments.” (Nguyen, 2004)
