As a result of the project, the following two tools have been developed:
SiSOB workbench: This is an analysis tool that has been designed as a knowledge worker’s workbench. Its user interface allows the user to combine different components for data conversion, analysis and visual representation. More information.

SiSOB data extractor: This system can be used for information crawling and extraction. It can be feed with either bibliographic data sources, such as Scopus or Web of Knowledge, or crawling information directly from the web through search engines. Its main goal is to extract curricular items from a set of researchers from their full names and expertise area. More information.

The project LeMo (monitoring of learning processes on personalizing and non-personalizing learning management systems) aims to develop a prototype of a web based Learning Analytics application, which provides detailed information on user navigational patterns within learning management systems and identifies needs for enhancement and revision of the learning offer. Target groups are content-provider, teacher and researcher. The prototype will support personalizing learning management systems that require a login for access as well as online encyclopedias that are non-personalizing, where neither login nor registration is needed to access content. In this project three Berlin universities cooperate with four partners in the elearning sector.
This tool opens or create a Macromedia Flash shared object file (.sol) displays the content of the file and allow you to change the values.. A flash hacking alternative to variable editing and cheat engine, you can change values saved by the game in a “.sol” file. You will find the .SOL files in x:Documents and Settings[account-name]Application DataMacromediaFlash Player#SharedObjects followed by the name of the website. If the game was running from your computer, the .SOL will be in the “localhost” folder. Replace ‘x’ with your main drive, the one with your OS, and the account-name with the currently logged in user.
Tired of online ads like I am? I have Firefox’s Adblock Plus and Safari AdBlock installed on my computer, but it becomes rather annoying to keep installing these applications on my multiple machines as well as every time I format them. To make ad blocking simpler I opted to use OpenDNS to block ads on the DNS level. To make this hack work you must configure your router to use OpenDNS’s servers (trust me you will want to do this anyway – their servers are FAST!) by following the OpenDNS tutorials. Secondly you must signup for a free OpenDNS account so you can setup network filters.
