Abstract

GeogDL is a digital library of geography examination resources designed to assist students in revising for a national geography examination in Singapore. As part of an iterative design process, we carried out participatory design and brainstorming with student and teacher design partners. The first study involved prospective student design partners. In response to the first study, we describe in this paper an implementation of PAPER – Personalised Adaptive Pathways for Exam Resources – a new bundle of personalized, interactive services containing a mock exam and a personal coach. The mock exam provides a simulation of the actual geography examination while the personal coach provides recommendations of exam questions tailored to suit individual ability levels. This paper concludes with findings from a second study involving teacher design partners to further refine GeogDL.
