Inputlog meets Art
German artist, Klaus Oehler (*1985), created a fascinating video with Inputlog, setting up a dialogue between the process and the product of writing (‘Prozedukt’). Klaus Oehler studied Indology, Iranian Studies, and Mathematics at the University of Tübingen. He has been working in different fields of art since graduation in 2014.

In June 2020 we were invited by our Chinese colleagues in Jinan to take care of an introductory webinar on Inputlog. We titled it “Using keystroke logging in your research … and in your classroom”.
It was presented at the 2nd Conference on Second Language Teaching and Research 2020, Shandong University (China) | subtitled video
Norwegian copytaks added
The copy task is available in ten languages, including now also Norwegian.
A heartfelt thank you to Anne Sætersdal Myklestad & Vibeke Ronneberg (Western Norway University of Applied Sciences & University of Stravanger, Norway). They were so kind to design the Norwegian copy task.
