Information Systems and Computer Graphics

At CSIG, we are particularly well positioned to address complex and difficult engineering problems facing industry, as we have the expertise to analyse, design, mine and implement large information systems ‑ using best practices for designing, developing and testing software engineering ‑, and also to provide the visual and user interaction components such a solution may require.

Furthermore, at CSIG we are also strongly committed to training young researchers and professionals. Presently, our researchers come from the University of Porto, Polytechnic of Porto, University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, Universidade Aberta and University of Minho.

Our centre addresses five main areas of research: Computer Graphics and Virtual Environments, Information Management and Information Systems, Software Engineering, Accessibility and Assistive Technologies and Special Purpose Computing Systems/Embedded Systems.

Handbook of Research on Determining the Reliability of Online Assessment and Distance Learning - Advances in Mobile and Distance Learning

Abstract
An academic library created an online course in information literacy skills in 2007 for engineering students. This chapter reports the evaluation of the course's effectiveness in developing those skills. In the academic year 2015/2016, a case study with a mixed-methods approach was applied to 5th-year students (N=91) enrolled in a course unit for Master Dissertation's preparation in the informatics and computing engineering programme. Students showed high confidence in their information literacy skills. Online assignments' performance was good, but activities revealed quality issues. Performance in the course unit's assignments reveals a poor application of acquired skills. But satisfaction is high: students value independent learning and online access to resources and content. Despite evidence of some positive impact, the course lacks effectiveness due to issues in the course unit's assignments. Needed improvements include a better realignment with students' needs and a redesign with an instructional model to assure the promotion of students' success.

Abstract
Energy efficiency in buildings can be enhanced by several actions: encouraging users to comprehend and then adopt more energy-efficient behaviors; aiding building managers in maximizing energy savings; and using automation to optimize energy consumption, generation, and storage of controllable and flexible devices without compromising comfort levels and indoor air-quality parameters. This paper proposes an integrated Information and communications technology (ICT) based platform addressing all these factors. The gamification platform is embedded in the ICT platform along with an interactive energy management system, which aids interested stakeholders in optimizing “when and at which rate” energy should be buffered and consumed, with several advantages, such as reducing peak load, maximizing local renewable energy consumption, and delivering more efficient use of the resources available in individual buildings or blocks of buildings. This system also interacts with an automation manager and a users’ behavior predictor application. The work was developed in the Horizon 2020 FEEdBACk (Fostering Energy Efficiency and BehAvioral Change through ICT) project.
