    In this paper, we propose a GUI-based learning system for the problem of mutual exclusion in multithreaded programming (MTP) such as race conditions, deadlock and starvation. Threads are group of cooperating program executions with shared memory. A thread in execution is switched one after another, and thread executions are in concurrent. Because mutual exclusion is necessary for avoiding race con... View full abstract»

    Having a functional Web-based learning environment is a norm for a large number of educational institutions today. But publishing plain e-learning materials in this environment does not contribute significantly to student's learning unless a sound pedagogical framework is adopted behind this process. Substantial researches have been done in the area of adaptive and intelligent tutoring systems to ... View full abstract»

    Researchers have investigated the possibilities for supporting language learning through a range of technologies, most recently mobile phones and interactive television (iTV). Drawing on a focus group study, we present a scenario demonstrating an approach that blends the features of these two technologies. Three areas are identified for further exploration: pedagogy, technical feasibility and inte... View full abstract»

    Means of achieving personalization in the Web are adaptive hypermedia techniques and the flexible composition of learning content from individual learning objects. If the objects are represented in a format different from the presentation format (e.g. as XML as opposed to HTML), a potentially expensive transformation process is required. Furthermore, caching becomes impractical depending on the de... View full abstract»

    Interface agents are a branch of the general research field of software agents which exist as a primary point of contact between human and computer. This paper aims at showing how to integrate an interface tutor (pedagogical) agent in a virtual collaborative learning environment in order to help students in the process of learning and the benefits from this human-computer interaction.

    There is a crucial issue in adaptive educational hypermedia, concerning the machine's ability to recognize the learner's style and profile to the purpose of providing the learning material tailored to the learner's specific needs. In this paper an approach to this problem is presented, based on methodologies one can find in fuzzy logic and neural networks. The so-called fuzzy cognitive map becomes... View full abstract»

    Michael Moore's law of transactional distance predicts an inverse relationship between dialogue and structure in any educational transaction. The greater the dialogue, the lesser the structure and vice versa. This paper describes the theoretical underpinnings of types of virtual learning environment that in some senses break this law by generating structure through dialogue. Such systems might thu...

    This paper examines accumulation methods for effective use of portfolios and develops a meta-language ("MelaPass") for describing the framework of portfolios for making a portfolio assessment. The purpose of MelaPass is to describe the structure of portfolios which have "soundness" and "exhaustiveness" features, and the language can be used in cooperation with existing metamodels (i.e., it has an ...

    Our group has been designing and implementing learning environments that promote deep understanding and transfer in complex domains. We have adopted the learning by teaching paradigm, and developed computer-based agents that students teach, and learn from this experience. The success of teachable agents has led us to develop a multiagent architecture that will be used to develop extended instructi... View full abstract»
