Measuring coherence accross media in learning environments

Thesis type
  • Master
Status Open
Supervisor(s)

Computer linguistics has provided impressive results for measuring the quality of writing, e.g. for automatic essay scoring. Multimedia content based indexing delivered a lot of models for the analysis of multimedia materials. In modern educational platforms, e.g. MOOCs and self-regulated learning platforms. In consequence, multimedia materials are produced by educational designers but also by the learners during their learning processes. Coherence is a semantic measure for the local and global connectivity of e.g. sentences, paragraphs, videos, slides among others. To measure the coherence of multimedia materials many computational methods reaching from natural language processing to machine learning needs to be combined in a common coherence model. Goal of this master thesis is to co-develop a coherence model for cross-media coherence and to prototypical combine a few of these computational methods for one or two analysis scenarios, e.g. a MOOC or a webinar.
