    We have developed a new idea processor, called modified Mandel-Art, in which a user can communicate with the system by using eye movement, finger and hand motion and voice. By using this cognitive idea processor, human associative thinking and especially problem solving, is accelerated. This type of idea processor may lead to innovating the educational style via the computer. View full abstract»

    Problem solving is one way to present thinking style of human beings. Most problems should be solved in some particular sequences. However, no matter how smart learners may possibly make mistakes while solving a problem. In order to decrease the mistakes making and increase the learning efficiency, a diagnostic intelligent agent is implemented in this paper to achieve the goal. Such a diagnostic i...

    The main issue addressed in this paper is how to help learners navigate in existing Web-based learning resources. Our approach to this issue is to provide learners with a space, in which they can see through WWW pages to plan a navigation path in a learner-centered way. We describe an assistant system for the navigation path planning, which is composed of a hyperspace map, page previewer and path ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes knowledge components that are thought to be appropriate and sufficient to precisely describe certain types of cognitive subject matter content (knowledge). It also describes knowledge structures that show the relationships among these knowledge components and among other knowledge objects. It suggests that a knowledge structure is a form of schema such as those that learners u... View full abstract»

    There are two tasks associated with the assessment of IT skills; the discovery of errors and the classification of errors. The discovery of errors is a pattern matching task where a candidate attempt is synchronised with the model answer. The classification of the errors consists of applying sets of rules to regions of a candidate answer corresponding to regions of the model solution. A particular... View full abstract»

    The paper introduces the idea of using patterns in the architectures of learning technology systems. A recent analysis of a number of existing architectures of such systems has revealed that many designers and developers use their own solutions when faced with design problems that are common to different systems, models, and paradigms. However, a closer look into such solutions and their compariso... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (184 KB)

    Recent learning theories advocate writing as a process of discovery and collaboration. Writing is no longer seen as a solitary task where the writer struggles to complete his work all by himself. This view of writing has prompted the establishment of writing centres or labs in institutions of higher learning in technologically advanced countries. Such writing centres have been set up with the aim ... View full abstract»

    Educational CD-ROMs should be not less interesting and attractive for children than numerous computer games. The approach offered by the authors allows one to reduce the existing gap between educational and game CD-ROMs. This is achieved due to a new spatial metaphor for the user interface and by using an effective multimedia courseware design method. The main idea of this metaphor for an educatio... View full abstract»

    We present an evaluation of various kinds of feedback in SQL-Tutor. Our initial hypothesis was that low-level feedback, containing all the details of a correct solution would be contra-productive, and that high-level feedback referring to the general principles of the domain that the student's solution violates would be highly effective. The evaluation study performed in 1999 confirmed our hypothe... View full abstract»
