This paper reports the findings of a study using ALEKS, a web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system, in an after-school program for 6th grade students. Findings indicate that after one school year of using the program,...
A framework of synthesizing tutoring conversation capability with web-based distance education courseware
Computers & Education Vol. 42, No. 4 (May 2004) pp. 375–388
Whereas existing learning environments on the Web lack high level interactivity, we have developed a human tutor-like tutorial conversation system for the Web that enhances educational courseware through mixed-initiative dialog with natural language ...
Vicarious Learning: Effects of Overhearing Dialog and Monologue-Like Discourse in a Virtual Tutoring Session
Journal of Educational Computing Research Vol. 29, No. 4 (2003) pp. 431–450
In two experiments, students overheard two computer-controlled virtual agents discussing four computer literacy topics in dialog discourse and four in monologue discourse. In Experiment 1, the virtual tutee asked a series of deep questions in the...
