LESSONS VNT Live-SIM Simulation projects Applets Quizzes Virtual Neutrons for Teaching E-learning large scale facility users of tomorrow Internet distributed material WIKI Evaluation Linda Udby E-learning didactics Test case 1 Nano- & Science Centres
Niels Bohr Institute

University of Copenhagen Internet based lessons Samples NMI3 E-learning project (4 years)
University students (bSc - PhD)
Their teachers/supervisors
Scientist from other fields Blended (online+classroom) research based learning
Regular University of Copenhagen course:
'Neutron scattering in Theory, Simulation and Experiment',
~20 students, 8 weeks + 1 week @ PSI
Collaboration with Department f. Science Education (J. Bruun)
Collaboration with Faculty of Life Sciences (L. Arleth, K. Mortensen) Webpage is the starting point of teaching (the virtual class-room)
Use structure and possibilities of internet (animations, videos etc)
Material is selected by teacher
Student works interactively with material Internet as an open database supplement to teaching
Material is selected by student i.e. not directed by teacher
Typically information in uploaded documents ( eg PDF's from neutron schools ) printed out and used in class-room Teacher Student Neutron scattering Proposals Template sample suite
Look at data from different samples at same instrument setting
Data treatment like real experiment, e.g. powder refinement by FullProf
Instr+sample = Virtual experiments Virtual experiments
For a given scientific problem which instrument(s) would you choose?
Resolution, range, time
Background from e.g.SE Quizzes
Virtual experiments
Exercises with hints and solutions
Applets/simulations Discussion fora
Feedback forms
Feedback in quizzes
Student WIKIs WIKI book
Moodle Lessons
Material from neutron schools
(optional) Video lessons/pencasts) Online encyclopedia
Never outdated
Contributions from experts
but need for moderation of e.g. notation Simple illustrations of a basic principle
Usually non-interactive
Visualisation of physics and math
Faster understanding Monte-Carlo neutron raytracing (McStas)
Illustration of complex user-defined problems
Familiarises the student with particular instruments
Virtual experiments WIKI what? Contents Text material
Allows for student controlled diffentiated teaching
Based on notes by K. Lefmann
Supplementing contributions in specialised fields welcome and expected Questions
Adapted Feedback
Grading/certification possible (but not current scope of VNT)
Could also be based on live-simulations
Invited scientists collaboration with didactics expert Instruments Template instrument suite representing all major neutron techniques
Essential parameters like bandwidth and collimation can be changed by the student E. Farhi, ILL E-learning offers unique possibilities to MEASURE how students learn
Web Analytics to collect user behaviour information
Statistical analysis - didactical interpretation
Feedback forms
Discussion pages Oliver Kreischer
Web Layout Peter Willendrup
Online simulationns Kim Lefmann Linda Udby
Virtual experiments quizzes, solutions Pia Jensen
Moderator, content manager Jurgen Neuhaus
Project leader Jesper Bruun
Physics Didactics Please contribute :) Jörg Pulz
VNT Server udby@nbi.dk Targeting Identification of user characteristics from web behaviour
Segmentation of user types from parameters
On-entry assesment or quick questionnaire of parameters
"what is your education level?"
"have you performed a scattering experiment before?"
"how much time do you intend to spend on learning about scattering?"
Targeted material for the specific user From ESS website Live-simulator in VNT Outreach School kids and their teachers
High school students
bSC students
Grad students
Scientists (in other fields)
... Virtual experiments (but all the tools are available for xrays too :) Games (not just) for kids? ... small And applets ... neutrons4science (from CLab@ILL) Note: Learning goals in targeted material (put it somewhere ....)
Learning goals in virtual experiments, specific instruments http://vnt.nmi3.org http://vnt.nmi3.org http://vnt.nmi3.org http://tvnt.nmi3.org/moodle/mod/quiz/view.php?id=5 The Virtual Classroom Test case 2 Blended research based education
Summerschool across Universities in the Øresund region
'Applications of X-Ray and Neutron Scattering in Biology, Chemistry and Physics'
3 weeks 5 ECTS (7.5 with report)
24 students, 3 weeks incl. 3 days experiments @ MAXLAB (SE)
5 ECTS (7.5 with report)
Collaboration between KU (SUND& SCIENCE), RUC, DTU, Lunds Univ. eRessources eExercises eCommunity The Virtual Classroom Johan S. Brinch Nielsen
Online simulation interface Thanks! Participants Helmut Schober Lecture Notes (WIKI book) Lise Arleth Kell Mortensen Bente Lebech Eddy Lelievre-Berna Andrew Wildes Julette Savin
Informations manager Inês Crespo Idea: Could we do them as student's projects in computer science?
Linda Udby (UCPH): Status/progress from UCPH
Jürgen Neuhaus (TUM): Status/progress from TUM
Jesper Bruun (UCPH): Web analysis of the WIKI user data
Johan S.B. Nielsen & Peter Willendrup (DTU): The McStas virtual experiments live-simulator and web-interface
Jörg Pulz (TUM) could presents some thoughts an challenges in the webdesign and contents.
