Welcome to the Chair of Human-Centered Technologies for Learning

Our research team, led by Prof. Enkelejda Kasneci, focuses on the exploration and development of innovative technologies for learning and teaching. Our emphasis is on the use of eye-tracking, virtual reality (VR), and large language models.

By integrating these technologies into teaching and learning processes, we aim to harness the potential of technology for optimal knowledge transfer and a better understanding of learning. In all our efforts, the human aspect is central. Because only by understanding and addressing the needs and requirements of learners can we enable effective use of these technologies.

"I am convinced that AI language models like ChatGPT represent an important technological milestone. They have the potential to revolutionize the way we learn and teach." - Prof. Enkelejda Kasneci
Our goal is to make learning and teaching even more engaging, interactive, and effective through the use of innovative technologies. To this end, we engage with current research topics such as "adaptive learning environments" and "personalized learning offerings." By using eye-tracking technology, we can better understand learners' behavior and comprehension, and address their individual needs. Virtual reality allows us to create immersive and realistic learning environments that make learning more vivid and practical. With the help of large language models, we can also improve communication between learners and teachers, and automatically generate and customize learning materials.

We aim not only to share our research findings with the academic community but also to enable practical applications in teaching. Therefore, we collaborate closely with schools to apply and further develop our findings in practice.
