“ResRec: A Multi-criteria Tool for Resource Recommendation” accepted at BPM 2016


The Process Mining UC research group congratulates Michael Arias, Eric Rojas, Jonathan Lee, Jorge Munoz-Gama and Marcos Sepúlveda, for their accepted  Demo paper in the 14th International Conference on Business Process Management (BPM2016), which will be held in the city of Rio de Janeiro between September 18th and 22nd of 2016.

General framework

The work presents the tool ResRec, a novel Multi-factor Criteria tool that can be used to recommend and allocate resources dynamically. The tool is a decision maker-oriented approach that provides the feature of solving individual requests (On-demand), or requests made in blocks (Batch) through a recommender system developed in ProM.

The authors must present their research and a poster at the at the BPM 2016 Demo Track.

logo_oficial_fondo_blancoThe group TECHNOLOGIES FOR DIGITAL LEARNING LAB congratulates Ronald Perez and Jorge Maldonado, who presented a publication in the 42nd Latin American Informatics Conference, CLEI 2016, which will be held in the city of Valparaiso between October 10th and October 14th of 2016.

The name of the accepted article is “How to design tools for supporting self-regulated learning in MOOCs? Lessons learned from a literature review from 2008 and 2016”.

This paper presents a systematic literature review that examines and analyzes the articles from 2008 until 2016 that have addressed the development of tools to support Self-Regulated Learning (SRL) in online and MOOC environments. The findings denote that: (1) there is a lack of tools to support SRL in MOOC environments; (2) the evaluation of the existing tools are not aligned whit the objectives of the research; (3) current research presents proposal of tools but very few achieve the stage of implementation; and (4) current existing tools tend to support many SRL strategies at the same time. Finally, it ends with a set of lessons learned for guiding the implementation of tools to support SRL strategies in MOOCs environments.

The authors Ronald Pérez (Department of Computer Science, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Chile and Universidad de Costa Rica, Headquarters Pacific, Costa Rica), Mar Pérez-Sanagustín (Department of Computer Science, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Chile) and Jorge Maldonado (Department of Computer Science, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Chile and Department of Computer Science, Universidad de Cuenca, Ecuador) must present their research at the conference in order to receive the feedback necessary within this event.
