  • The Codex project is an online platform for research into new methodologies to improve the learning process by increasing the interaction between teachers, learners and the material.

    This project will analyse, design and implement the necessary functionalities so that plugins can be defined in Codex. The plugins will allow new functionalities to be incorporated without the need to change the base code, by defining functions in JavaScript that the plugin user configures in the application. The project will develop the functionalities for its support and an example plugin.

    Examples of plugins that could be defined in the project are: modification of the test interface depending on the type of question, definition of templates with specific interface for certain types of questions, generation of graphs based on the data provided by the application, interaction with the application from different clients such as an MS Office application, etc.

The Codex project is an online platform for research into new methodologies to improve the learning process by increasing the interaction between teachers, learners and the material.

This project will analyse, design and implement the activities necessary for the application of the Codex platform in one of the following topics:

  • information systems (databases and web design)

  • pre-calculus (geometry, trigonometry)

  • programming with Python

The material will consist of short explanations, exercises, problems, videos, animations and scripts of some of the exercises.

Scope: System Dynamics Model applied to the prediction of Coronavirus spread and its consequences

Goal: Develop a SD Model to predict the evolution of a Pandemic based on some key parameters.

How: ting from an existing model, add new loops, stocks and flows to cover other influences associated with the pandemic evolution. Both the old and the new models should be represented using Vensim.

Approach: Test the model against real data obtained from past reports and use the results to tune the new model. The data used will be that available for the Basque Country (EUSKADI).

Requirements: Knowledge about SD modeling; knowledge about VENSIM, access to Data

Deliverables:

  • The SD model in VENSIM;
  • A set of graphs generated by the simulation;
  • The description of parameters settings and the contents of the reports;
  • The comparison between the results generated by the model and the real information obtained by the reports;

Tools to be mastered: VENSIM; VENTITY

Development time: between 2 and 3 months with 20 hours per week dedication

Data for Euskadi covid19: Coronavirus evolution in the Basque Country

General on Epidemics SD modeling: Several articles available on demand

Scope: There has been a lot of recent publications on Pandemics due to the outbreak of covid-19. There is also a high demand of projects for analyzing the evolution of pandemics particularly for new waves of other types of Pandemics.

Goal: The goal of this project is to generate a data base of literature, both scientific and informative (newspaper and web). As a side product, another goal is to generate a taxonomy to facilitate understanding and clustering.

How: Perform a systematic review of the literature and save the relevant results in Mendeley. At the same time perform a literature search using an automatic tool generating another set of results. Compare and unify the results and, most importantly, the taxonomy.

Approach: Design a search query for the retrieval of elements, using google on one side and scientific bases on the other. For the google query, the relevant results should be stored in the Mendeley Digital Library, adding additional metadata, in particular, the taxonomy classification. In parallel, a similar search should be performed using Bibliometrics tool to select, classify the elements extracted from Web of Science and Scopus bases. Finally, the results of both searches should be confronted and combined, generating a single DL and a unique taxonomy.

Requirements:

  • Knowledge about Dl and particularly Mendeley;
  • knowledge on Bibliometrics tool;
  • knowledge in Taxonomies.

Deliverables: A systematic review of the literature describing the search and selection mechanisms, with corresponding taxonomy and the DL.

Tools to be mastered: Mendeley and Bibliometrics

Development time: Estimated between 2 and 3 months

Sources:

  • An initial Mendeley DL
  • An initial taxonomy
