Usage Analysis in Learning Systems. Published . Publisher: Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE).


This book explores different approaches for analyzing student data
collected electronically in computer-based learning activities in order to support
teaching and learning. The articles selected for this special issue are extended versions of the papers presented at the workshop on Usage Analysis in Learning Systems, organized in conjunction with the 12th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (Amsterdam, The Netherlands, July 2005).
