CBT - Accessibility in Web Forms

(Team Project- Multimedia Management Kiel, 2006) 


Web accessibility is about enabling equal access to online content and services for all people, including those with visual and mobility impairment regardless of what browsing technology used.

Business-processes in SVG

(Computer Graphics project by Annette Rosendahl)

Screenshot SVG Project 

The goal of this project was to produce a scalable vector graphic (SVG) rendering Gantt-Diagrams. To get business processes as an output in SVG-format, several steps were necessary. First of all the project should offer a solution which is comfortable and easy to handle by the user. For that reason a Java-application was provided which takes typed in information as an input and produces an XML-file as an output. This XML-file is then the basis for producing the 2D-graphics in SVG-format using XSL for the transformation. That file just has to be double-clicked by the user, and the diagram is shown in the browser.

Life of a Prof – A MMC game

(Computer Graphics project by Melanie Piorek and Ann-Kristin Werner)

Screenshot Flash Game 

The task was to develop a computer game about the Multimedia-Campus Kiel. The game’s purpose is to annoy the main actors, two Professors of the Campus. Various items have to be used strategically. The location where everything takes place is the main lecture room. The game is developed in Macromedia Flash.

The idea behind the project was to model a spacecraft using 3D-Studio Max modelling software. A small animation for a stereoscopic display was generated to offer the viewer a real impression of a 3-dimensional experience.

XQuiz—An XForms Web Application

(Computer Graphics project by Stefan Gerwien and Matthias Häsel)

Screenshot XQuiz 

The project shows, how XForms can be applied for developing a simple quiz game Web application. A quiz consists of multiple questions. The application supports various question types, such as multiple choice, true/false or fill-in-the-blank. Since questions are associated with points, a score can be calculated after a player has finished a quiz. The application stores the highest score for each quiz and player, so that a result is comparable to previous achieved ones. The quiz game application—referred to as XQuiz from now on—consists of two independent, XForms-based user interfaces, namely

  • the Authoring Application, which allows the authoring of questions and quizzies, and
  • the Gaming Application, which enables the player to play a single quiz-game.

Screenshot iTV Betting Service 

Online gambling is one of the most profitable market segments in e-Commerce. The JAXX GmbH has established horse race betting over television. For the future it is planned to add a new betting experience implemented as an interactive television (iTV) application. The task was to develop an iTV application for JAXX horses in order to demonstrate the potential of iTV. A sample scenario for gambling using the MHP platform has been developed
