    Research on learning has shown that students learn differently and that they prefer to use different type of resources. Adaptive educational systems can support different learning characteristics by building a model of the student's learning behaviour and subsequently adapting the learning environment to match different needs. However major challenges exist, as it is not clear how a student model ... View full abstract»

    Relations between learning outcomes and the learning objects which are assembled to facilitate their achievement are the subject of increasingly prevalent investigation, particularly with approaches which advocate the aggregation of learning objects as complex constituencies for achieving learning outcomes. From the perspective of situated learning, we show how the CASE framework imbues learning o... View full abstract»

    Implementing new technologies in adaptable robotic appliances based on multidisciplinary approaches creates at least a twofold problem: to properly design the multifaceted robotic behavior and to render as simplified as possibly the maintenance and monitoring of its components. In this article is described an adopted solution for managing a robotic appliance meant for e-learning and e-commerce app... View full abstract»

  • A dynamic geometry environment for learning theorem proving

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):15 - 17
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (152 KB)

    Many students of geometry theorem proving do not perform satisfactorily even when asked to prove simple theorems. Their problems might arise from their poor understanding of the involved geometric concepts, or from their ignorance of intermediate geometric propositions that are needed to derive the final conclusion. To address these issues, we propose a dynamic geometry environment for theorem pro... View full abstract»

    There are lots of learning objects stored on numerous repositories. They are described by metadata allowing users (either authors or learners) to search and reuse these learning objects. The process of reuse is not so simple and requires some attention during the design phase. In our opinion, it seems clear that semantic metadata are required to allow a real reusing and assembling of learning obje... View full abstract»

    Game-based learning has been recognized as an effective way for learning and has emerged to be a promising approach in addition to traditional lecture-based learning. Many schemes, methodologies, as well as systems were developed and applied to training courses in both academic and industrial domains. However, the creation of games for learning purposes is not easy for common teachers since it req... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present a knowledge learning diagnosis approach to supporting a computer-supported collaborative learning environment. Bayesian network technique is used here to diagnose the misconception about learning knowledge and to reason potential misconception for individual learners. After learners have made a test, the system using probabilistic reasoning will automatically create learn... View full abstract»

    The main issue addressed here is how to help graduate students obtain advanced scientific and technological knowledge by Web-based self-directed learning. Our approach is to propose a life cycle management model of e-Learning courseware, which promotes the design of learning management systems. In this paper, we also describe a framework for the learning management system based on the model using ... View full abstract»

    With the features of supports by one-on-one educational computing, students can not only be a knowledge receiver, but also take more responsible in the learning activities. AGQ which stands for asking a good question was proposed to describe a learning model for student question generation in the classroom. A trail test was conducted in a graduate course, and some problems were found in this model... View full abstract»

    In this paper we propose a marking-based synchronized multimedia tutoring system (MSMT) to enhance our previous work, the Web-based synchronized multimedia lecturing system (WSML), for language learning in writing skill. For non-native users, writing is usually a barrier when they are learning a foreign language. Therefore we simulate several symbols which are common use in the traditional paper-b...

    To accurately analyze the problems of students in learning, the composed test sheets must meet multiple assessment criteria, such as the ratio of relevant concepts to be evaluated, the average discrimination degree, difficulty degree and estimated testing time. In this paper, a heuristic approach is proposed to improve the efficiency of composing near optimal test sheets from very large item banks... View full abstract»

    The objective of educational modeling languages (EML) is to provide a containment framework of elements that can describe any design of a teaching-learning situation in a formal way. In this paper we propose a methodology to evaluate how well an EML supports the realization of such descriptions. The methodology is based on the identification of perspectives and patterns. We consider perspectives a... View full abstract»
