Intelligent and Adaptive Tutoring for Active Learning and Training Environments
Kenny, Claire; Pahl, Claus
Interactive Learning Environments, v17 n2 p181-195 Jun 2009
Active learning facilitated through interactive and adaptive learning environments differs substantially from traditional instructor-oriented, classroom-based teaching. We present a web-based e-learning environment that integrates knowledge learning and skills training. How these tools are used most effectively is still an open question. We propose knowledge-level interaction and adaptive feedback and guidance as central features. We discuss these features and evaluate the effectiveness of this web-based environment, focusing on different aspects of learning behaviour and tool usage. Motivation, acceptance of the approach, learning organisation and actual tool usage are aspects of behaviour that require different evaluation techniques to be used. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
