Master
Analyzing distributed ledger data structures for the immutable persistence of transactions and tamper-secure execution of processes
Posted on 31.08.2018; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Thomas Rose; Advisor(s): Thomas Osterland
Often only noticed as a technology that enables the digital currency Bitcoin, blockchain is a novel protocol that allows the distributed and secure storing of information and untampered execution of program code in trust-less environments. As part of a broader range of technologies that allow the immutable storage of information in decentralized networks, where network participants build a consensus about the correctness of persisted information, the classical blockchain is only one specific implementation of distributed ledger technologies. Other ledger technologies are based on directed acyclic graphs (DAGs). Topic of this thesis is the exploration and implementation of a DAG based ledger in the existing blockchain framework Labchain (https://github.com/putschli/LabChain).

Citation recommendation bot
Current advances in recommender systems allow for context-specific suggestions of relevant literature based on various parameters. As a contextual help in writing scientific papers, a citation recommender system should aid the student by providing a personalized suggestion of publications to consider for the Related Work section of a publication. Hence, for this project, we want to employ mentoring bots to provide suggestions of relevant scientific publications to students to support their literature research.

Gamification of habit forming in Distance Education
Recent developments show a rise in popularity of Learning Management Systems in an increasingly digital teaching enviroment. However, students can encounter difficulties with sustained motivation without extrinsic influences like communicating with peers. The application of gamification principles to the digital learning process provides motivating factors for students to aid their learning process. Participation in educational courses is a process often spanning many weeks, so a habit-based approach to learning seems prudent.

A business model is an abstract model of the business of one or more cooperating organisations. It is a conceptual and architectural implementation of a business strategy and the foundation for the implementation of business processes and information systems. The research objective of this thesis is the design, implementation and evaluation of an interactive tool for the engineering of a business model.
Master
Measuring coherence accross media in learning environments
Posted on 28.09.2017; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR, Prof. Dr. Marc Spaniol
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. Computer linguistics has provided impressive results for measuring the quality of writing, e.g. for automatic essay scoring. 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 prototypically combine these computational methods for a webinar.

Service Provisioning for Mobile Edge Cloud Computing
Posted on 26.10.2017; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR
Mobile edge cloud computing provides a platform to accommodate the offloaded traffic workload generated by mobile devices. It can significantly reduce the access delay for mobile application users. However, the high user mobility brings significant challenges to the service provisioning for mobile users, especially for the delay-sensitive mobile applications. We want to research how to update the service provisioning solution for a given community of mobile users. Therefore, we compare current offloading strategies, information structures based on peer-to-peer in combination with cloud computing and client-side solutions using advanced Web protocols like WebRTC. The thesis continues our successful research record in mobile cloud computing.

Simulation tools for the Assessment of Emergency Management Processes
Posted on 12.09.2018; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Thomas Rose; Advisor(s): Thomas Osterland
Large scale disasters represent a major challenge for any medical service. Typically such disasters, be they founded in terrorism, natural or technical catastrophize, generate a significant number of casualties (MASCAL – Mass Casualty) with severe and unusual injury patterns. Many processes are supported by Standard Operating Procedures as common practice, but any catastrophe requires a change of processes due to the nature of the disaster and thus furnishes a major challenge for hospital operations. As of now, hospitals and medical services are designed for a specific workload that has been agreed among different stakeholders. Hence, processes and their resources are designed in light of best practices for patient care as well as anticipated workload.

Posted on 04.03.2021; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR; Advisor(s): Benedikt Hensen, M.Sc.
Mixed reality provides many opportunities for learning applications in formal and informal education. In previous projects, we created different learning applications for various use cases. The applications target technologies like the Microsoft HoloLens, HTC Vive, Oculus Quest 2 and smartphones. Initial pilot evaluations of these applications have already been conducted. However, we would like to have a more detailed and systematic analysis of the application’s characteristics in their intended use cases.

A Cross-Platform User Interface Description Language for Mixed Reality
Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR; Advisor(s): Benedikt Hensen, M.Sc.
In order to provide content for the many mixed reality devices with their varying display technologies and input methods, there is a trend in mixed reality development to incorporate cross-platform support in applications. Cross reality (XR) also takes this a step further by providing cross-platform support for both augmented and virtual reality devices. The technical foundation for this is already established by 3D engines such as Unity which allow an application with one code base to be deployed to a large variety of end devices, e.g. the Microsoft HoloLens or AR-capable smartphones alike. Furthermore, libraries like the Mixed Reality Toolkit have formed a hardware abstraction layer so that the input devices are mapped onto a general input event system that can handle touch input on smartphones, 3D pointers of head-mounted displays and direct 3D in-air touch interactions alike. This foundation allows developers to port an application to multiple devices. However, one big challenge that MR developers still face is that the UI does not automatically adapt to the input specifics of each MR device in order to provide a comfortable user experience. For instance, floating 3D menus can work well on head-mounted displays but on smartphone with AR mode, they can be replaced with an on-screen touchable menu.

Immersive Curriculum and Learning Plan Visualizations in Mixed Reality
Yul Eberlein in 2021; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR, Prof. Wolfgang Prinz, Ph.D; Advisor(s): Benedikt Hensen, M.Sc.
The creation of learning plans is a complex and important task. There are dependencies between the different topics, e.g. an advanced subject can only be understood if the underlying basic theories have been considered. Learning plans contain short-term, mid-term and long-term goals which should ideally be synchronized to each other. Additionally, learning plans bear a strategic component by identifying aspects which are most beneficial for the student’s future. There are also collaborative considerations. Members of learning groups want to adapt their learning plans to each other so that they can either learn topics together simultaneously or so that one group member who is already familiar with the topic is able to support the other group members. A framework for creating learning plans is given by Learning Design which defines clear learning outcomes, activities, times and required resources. Since learning plans are abstract, they are rarely visualized. However, such a visualization can act as a persistent overview that allows students but also lecturers to create consistent learning plans where short-term tasks work towards long-term learning outcomes. To grasp the complex nature of learning plans, a promising solution is the immersive creation of visualizations in 3D using Mixed Reality technology.
