  • CICERO-Kauppi I (2006-2007)
    The short-term review project explored the possibilities and opportunities for the
    commercialisation of innovations and results of learning research in Finland. The project
    also explored how researchers and academics viewed their role as potential developers of
    commercial products. The results of CICERO-KAUPPI project were published in CICERO
    Learning publication series, CICERO Papers, in 2007

  • IQ Form - The Virtual University project (2000-2004)

    The system consists of a large data bank which contains different kinds of instruments of mapping needs of learning and learners on the Web. The instruments are used to evaluate learning profiles and styles - when learning alone or in collaboration. With the help of the system there can be gathered up quantitative and qualitative feedback which can be analyzed e.g. by a Bayesian technique.

    The system is suitable for tutoring when studying on the Web; it operates as a student's support during his/her studies and gives feedback to teachers, designers and Web material producers already during the course. Guidance given by the IQ Learn motivates him/her to develop his/her strengths and learning strategies based on the self-assessment tests.

    The project has published the book: Theoretical Understandings for Learning the Virtual University (Eds. Hannele Niemi & Pekka Ruohotie). Hämeenlinna: RCVE (Research Center for Vocational Education and Training)
