Intelligent Assistance for Teachers in Collaborative E-Learning Environments
Casamayor, Agustin; Amandi, Analia; Campo, Marcelo
Computers & Education, v53 n4 p1147-1154 Dec 2009
Collaborative learning environments provide a set of tools for students acting in groups to interact and accomplish an assigned task. In this kind of systems, students are free to express and communicate with each other, which usually lead to collaboration and communication problems that may require the intervention of a teacher. In this article, we introduce an intelligent agent approach to assist teachers through monitoring participations made by students within a collaborative distance learning environment, detecting conflictive situations in which a teacher's intervention may be necessary. High precision rates achieved on conflict detection scenarios suggest great potential for the application of the proposed rule-based approach for providing personalized assistance to teachers during the development of group works. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
