My tasks 02/2018 - 04/2018
Based on the original MediaWiki extension, I was joint responsible for realizing changes requested by Isabel Steinhardt PhD and Chris Buchheim during his internship at INCHER-Kassel.
The extension is hosted on sozmethode.de, a platform dedicated to determine the advantages and disadventages of hermeneutic interpretations done online, in comparison to conventional in-person sessions.
