Adaptive scaffolding has been proposed as an efficient means for supporting self-directed learning both in educational as well as in adaptive learning systems research. However, the effects of adaptation on self-directed learning and the differential contributions of different adaptation models have not been systematically examined. In this paper, we(More)
Besides saving energy, using it at the right time (i.e. when there is a supply surplus, and the power is produced by sustainable power sources such as hydroelectricity or wind) is an important possibility to achieve positive effects for the environment. To enable the user to align their behavior with the dynamics of the energy generation they need to be(More)
At an early stage of designing persuasive technologies there is the challenge of selecting a target behavior and examining variables that prevent it. Within our research we are forming sustainability related persuasive technologies in the context of domestic energy consumption. In this paper we present different types of barriers preventing people from the(More)
In this position paper we discuss some thoughts on the role of the user as well as HCI design patterns for optimized energy management within buildings in the context of automated building management systems and smart grid networks. Our central argument is that design patterns supporting the users in easily specifying their needs and restrictions with(More)
Style guides have become an important and common way to improve and standardise development of user interfaces. However, there are several well-known problems on using style guides. Having these problems in mind we present an effective and automated publishing process. First we will introduce a role based approach to model style guides. After that we will(More)
Energy consumption is abstract and invisible for consumers within the household. Through the European rollout of smart meters, an attempt to develop information and communication technologies to reduce domestic energy consumption has been launched. There is the expectation that usage of these technologies will result in energy and cost savings. This paper(More)
Coworking spaces are shared office environments for independent professionals. Such spaces have been increasing rapidly throughout the world, and provide, in addition to basic business infrastructure, the opportunity for social interaction. This article explores social interaction in coworking spaces and reports the results of two studies. Study 1 (N = 69(More)
