Learner-Formulated Questions in Technology-Supported Learning Applications.
Heinrich, Eva; Johnson, Russell; Luo, Daoshui; Maurer, Hermann; Sapper, Marianne
This paper looks at learner-formulated questions in technology-supported learning applications. Traditionally, technology-supported learning applications request input from the learner. The learner's response is used to assess the knowledge of the learner, to define a navigation path through the material or to construct a learner model. The objective is to add another form of interaction between learner and system, where the learner can pose questions to the system in similar fashion as to a human tutor. The paper discusses ways of dealing with these learner-formulated questions, question formats and existing approaches. It then introduces an approach for learner-formulated questions that is based on the Flexible Structured Coding Language (FSCL). Two specific approaches are presented: the syntax-based and the semantic-based. After a discussion of these approaches, the paper concludes with an outline of future work. (Contains 12 references.)
