  1. A Methodology for Assessing Learning in Complex and Ill-Structured Task Domains

    J Michael Spector

    New information and communications technologies and research in cognitive science have led to new ways to think about and implement learning environments. Among these new approaches to instruction ... More

    pp. 109-120

  2. Adaptive Cognitive-Based Selection of Learning Objects

    Pythagoras Karampiperis, Taiyu Lin, Demetrios G. Sampson & Kinshuk

    Adaptive cognitive-based selection is recognized as among the most significant open issues in adaptive web-based learning systems. In order to adaptively select learning resources, the definition... More

  3. Adaptive Link Generation for Multiperspective Thinking on the Web: An Approach to Motivate Learners to Think

    Hiroyuki Mitsuhara, Kazuhide Kanenishi & Yoneo Yano

    To increase the efficiency of exploratory learning on the Web, we previously developed a free-hyperlink environment that allows adaptive link generation. In this environment, learners can make new ... More

  5. Education System Using Interactive 3D Computer Graphics (3D-CG) Animation and Scenario Language for Teaching Materials

    Hiroshi Matsuda & Yoshiaki Shindo

    The 3D computer graphics (3D-CG) animation using a virtual actor's speaking is very effective as an educational medium. But it takes a long time to produce a 3D-CG animation. To reduce the cost of ... More
