Pinvox Method to Enhance Self-Study in Blended Learning: Experiences at University of Bucharest

Enrique Canessa, Bodgan Logofatu


We report results on the first large-scale trial
implementation of the new Pinvox algorithm carried out at
the Department of Distance Learning (DL) of the University
of Bucharest to encourage hundreds of Bachelor and Master
DL students to perform their self-study. Pinvox is an open
source tool that helps to ensure "on-line attendance and to
induce ?student's attention through the identification of
different, randomly selected, brief audio PINs embedded
automatically in videos or audio files assigned to each
student. We argue that checking how students watched a
video lecture has many advantages in the formative
assessment work.
