RIKE Research Project: Work now in Trial March 1st 2022

Solent University RIKE Web Video Learning Design Project

Participate in a research study, conducted by Solent University – Computing School  and Westminster University – UK, to examine blended learning web video designs. See Official Details here


There are two learning interfaces:
360˚ Webinar Model
Multicam Webinar Model

Why not take part now?

A £10 Amazon voucher code will be sent to the first 30 respondents after the transcript has been confirmed.

Follow the sequence.
1 Watch a sample video of each method.
2 Sign a consent form and fill in the short, 10 minute survey about the interface.
Later, you will be invited to a short Microsoft Teams interview or focus group discussion.

Important: Video Recording and Usage

During the research study, we will be recording your interviews. The analysis of the web video learning sample videos aim to improve the two blended learning designs. These video clips will not be posted publicly on the Internet and your participation in this session will be anonymous. The Project Manager and partners will not provide any details with its use of the information and images resulting from the study which would allow any third party to identify you.

Sensitive Information
If you enter private information (account numbers or balances, personally identifiable data, etc.) during this study, it will be recorded by the screen sharing capture. However, this information will be manually blurred out from the recording immediately following the interview, and will not be stored after that in any other way.

If you have any questions or problems following the interview, you can contact us at anthony.basiel@solent.ac.uk Subject: Solent Research Project

A trial of the value of an online Zoom and Teams interface in the Research Area for tutoring methods, developed during lockdown at Middlesex University  y Dr Mike Howarth.
I build on Wittgenstein methods of active writing during tutorials in academic writing. Writing taught to BBC School Radio staff.
I test the Blackmagic ATEM  switcher to deliver a greater sense of ‘engagement’ to HE students during an  Wittgenstein self-correcting experience. The Blackmagic ATEM enables the student to see their writing and multiple sources of information using a desk set up  which delivers a conversation called 45˚ Learning.

Dr Anthony Basiel of Solent University tests 360˚ camera technology to achieve similar student experiences in a group teaching context.
His Research, Innovation and Knowledge Exchange (RIKE) Award provides funds for students to participate.

It is important that students participate. But the focus is on the technologies and the ‘engagement’ and involvement they can achieve within the current limitations of Zoom and Teams.
Sample sessions with students will be recorded in Zoom. They will receive a video of the session and are asked to fill in a questionnaire.

These Zoom recording will be analysed by a separate set of students studying usability evaluation methods with Dr Li Jin, Senior Lecturer in Computer Science and SFHEA, at the College of Design, Creative and Digital Industries University of Westminster.

The final stage of the project is to put forward these technologies and their assessment methods for a full-scale government funded student assessment research project run by the University of Westminster.
