Example text

In this work, we modified the technique to adopt the approach of [10] and [7]. Here, each evaluator in the group assigned weights between a scale of 1 to 5 to each sub-dimension independently, with five being the most important and one being the least important. When wide discrepancies occurred, the group discussed until a general agreement was reached. Finally, an average was taken to obtain single numerical weighting value for each sub-dimension. Following this, the final weighting is divided with the number of questions or checklist items.

On the other hand, it is possible to understand how users exploit The European Library portal, what they expect from it, and what they would like to get by using additional information like user questionnaires. With the use of questionnaires, knowledge about their level of satisfaction can be obtained along with recommendations and hints about possible improvements.

The instructor can keep track of the groups’ progress and discussions using the same tools as the students, but with full access to all students’ work. For example, the instructor can view the index metadata using a search interface or access the specific group page to inspect the students’ discussion and indexing term assignments. The instructor can also view the activity log to see the participation rates of individual students. The activities tracked by the current system include sign in, sign out, annotate, and comment.
