Description/Abstract

This paper outlines a series of experiments looking at the annotation and subsequent analysis of skills-based learning and teaching in the domain of Nursing. The experiments used Semantic Web technologies to create and store annotations of the student's activities. A number of techniques were used to create these annotations ranging from manual textual annotations by observers through to automatic spatial annotations from a location tracking system. Combining these annotations sets points towards new methods for analysis of both student learning and educational viewpoints on such skills-based labs. Initial observations from these proof of concept studies will be presented along with future directions the work may take
