Combining Cognitive, Affective, Social and Metacognitive Learner Attributes for Assistance in Distributed Learning Environments.
Paquette, Gilbert; Brisebois, Anne; Ruelland, Diane
Adaptive assistance in distributed learning environments (DLEs) provides new and exciting possibilities through the full exploitation of data captured from the interaction of the different actors with information processing, collaboration, and self-management tools. This paper presents a process to build adaptive assistance in a DLE. A DLE is rich enough to anchor a diversified user model, including the user's competency achievements, the user's affective reactions to the activities and resources, the user's collaboration patterns within a group and the user's metacognitive activity. Together with a model of the group and of the environment, these three models contribute to a diagnosis and a selective display of information intended for human or computerized assistance agents.
