Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Many studies are claiming that compulsory attendance has its benefits for students because it is positively influencing their performance in consequence. This means that fully attending students are receiving a better grade than those who skip parts of the course. Whereas there are existing technologies to monitor the attendance of students in standard classroom situations the possibilities to provide such functionalities at online videos are limited. Because of that this work introduces an approach to assess the performance of students at videos. For that a web-platform which offers a detailed recording of the watched parts of videos is presented. The evaluation shows the performance of the students at a course consisting of videos with compulsory attendance and furthermore it points out that the approach for monitoring the attendance at online videos is basically working.
