Poxels: polygonal voxel environment rendering (2014)
Conference Proceeding
Miller, M., Cumming, A., Chalmers, K., Kenwright, B., & Mitchell, K. (2014). Poxels: polygonal voxel environment rendering. In Proceedings of the 20th ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology - VRST '14 (235-236). https://doi.org/10.1145/2671015.2671125

We present efficient rendering of opaque, sparse, voxel environments with data amplified in local graphics memory with stream-out from a geomery shader to a cached vertex buffer pool. We show that our Poxel rendering primitive aligns with optimized r... Read More about Poxels: polygonal voxel environment rendering.

Student behaviour in a flexible learning course framework. (2011)
Conference Proceeding
Russell, G., & Cumming, A. (2011). Student behaviour in a flexible learning course framework. In Proceedings of the IADIS International Conference on e-Learning (181-188)

Flexible learning approaches to education are important in modern Universities. Students should be able to choose how they will study their courses, and educators should be prepared to support students in their choices, and guide students to employ s...

Time-series Explorer: An Animated Information Visualisation for Microarray Time-course Data (2005)
Journal Article
Craig, P., Kennedy, J., & Cumming, A. (2005). Time-series Explorer: An Animated Information Visualisation for Microarray Time-course Data. BMC Bioinformatics, 6, P8. https://doi.org/10.1186/1471-2105-6-S3-P8

Microarray technologies are a relatively new development that allow biologists to monitor the activity of thousands of genes (normally around 8,000) in parallel across multiple stages of a biological process. While this new perspective on biological... Read More about Time-series Explorer: An Animated Information Visualisation for Microarray Time-course Data.

Coordinated parallel views for the exploratory analysis of microarray time-course data. (2005)
Conference Proceeding
Craig, P., Kennedy, J., & Cumming, A. (2005). Coordinated parallel views for the exploratory analysis of microarray time-course data. . https://doi.org/10.1109/CMV.2005.5

Microarray time-course data relate to the recorded activity of thousands of genes, in parallel, over multiple discrete points in time during a biological process. Existing techniques that attempt to support the exploratory analysis of this data rely... Read More about Coordinated parallel views for the exploratory analysis of microarray time-course data..

Online assessment and checking of SQL: detecting and preventing plagiarism. (2005)
Conference Proceeding
Russell, G., & Cumming, A. (2005). Online assessment and checking of SQL: detecting and preventing plagiarism.

The automatic checking of online assessments and tutorials offers a significant advantage to students. Such students can work out-of-hours, from home or work, managing their own time allocation. This allows formal practical sessions to concentrate on... Read More about Online assessment and checking of SQL: detecting and preventing plagiarism..

Automatic checking of SQL: Computerised grading. (2005)
Journal Article
Cumming, A., & Russell, G. (2005). Automatic checking of SQL: Computerised grading. IntInternational Journal of Learning: Annual Review, 12, 127-134

Undergraduates are taught the database language SQL using internet based tools. The managed learning environment includes assessment.

Improving the student learning experience for SQL using automatic marking. (2004)
Conference Proceeding
Russell, G., & Cumming, A. (2004). Improving the student learning experience for SQL using automatic marking. In D. Kinshuk, G. Sampson, & P. IsaĆ­as (Eds.), Proceedings of the IADIS International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (281-288)

An online interactive learning environment which offers immediate feedback to student learning SQL was constructed. This has supported the gathering of interesting statistics on student behaviour. Changes to the environment targeted at improving stud... Read More about Improving the student learning experience for SQL using automatic marking..
