Abstract

Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia, is implementing several approaches to support staff in their online teaching activities, using system information captured from the University’s online learning and teaching system (OLT). This paper outlines some data harvesting techniques adopted by QUT for improving support for teachers’ use of educational technologies. The existing system logs and the databases developed at QUT have led to more proactive support service and improved system usability.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
