About

Leonel Morgado is Assistant Professor with Habilitation, at the Portuguese Open University, where he lectures on research methods, programming, and the use of virtual worlds. He is also the President of the board of the Portuguese Society of Videogame Sciences, and a board member of the international research association, Immersive Learning Research Network. His main research interest is the use and development of virtual worlds as tools for learning and business, which he pursues since 2000, focusing on multi-user platforms since 2006. He authored over 100 papers, in journals, conferences, and as book chapters. Before pursuing an academic career, he was business and technical manager of an harware import, distribution, and retail company, terminologist for the localization teams of MS Office 97 and Oracle InterOffice, language consultant for IBM/Lotus, a coordinator of Web-development and software-deployment teams, and manager of a cooperative extension team fighting the digital divide in rural villages.

Tele-Media-Art

Authors
Dias, JR; Penha, R; Morgado, L; Alves da Veiga, P; Carvalho, ES; Fernandes-Marcos, A;

Publication
International Journal of Technology and Human Interaction

Abstract
Tele-media-art is a web-based asynchronous e-learning platform, enabling blind students to have dance and theatre classes remotely, using low-cost motion tracking technology feasible for home use. Teachers and students submit dance recordings augmented with sound synthesis of their motions. Sound synthesis is generated by processing Kinect motion capture data, enabling blind students to compare the audio feedback of their motions with the audio generated by the teacher's motions. To study the feasibility of this approach, the authors present data on early testing of the prototype, performed with blindfolded users.

Multimodal Narratives as a Tool for In-Service Teachers in an Online Professional Development Course

Publication
Multimodal Narratives in Research and Teaching Practices - Advances in Educational Technologies and Instructional Design

Abstract
This chapter presents how multimodal narratives were employed as a self-reflection tool within an online professional development program for in-service teacher training at Universidade Aberta, Portugal during two editions of a pedagogic practice course. The chapter includes the aspects that raised issues and those that trainees performed correctly. This is done in three stages: beforehand, upon initial contact with multimodal narratives, and after providing feedback to trainees. The most relevant issues were in aspects directly required to enrich the narrative. Aspects related to multimodal narrative structure and features were completed successfully. It is recommended that future attempts to employ multimodal narratives in this context adapt learning resources and pedagogic support practices by employing formative feedback and continual support during the trainees' process of exploring and exploiting multimodal narratives.
