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 ...
World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education 2006 (October 2006) pp. 2747–2752
We present in this paper a new approach to question generation. Our approach to question generation is based on lexical, syntactic and semantic patterns described in a mark-up language. The expressivity of the language allows its application to both ...
Learning and Instruction Vol. 22, No. 5 (October 2012) pp. 320–330
The current studies investigated the efficient use of dialogue in intelligent tutoring systems that use natural language interaction. Such dialogues can be relatively time-consuming. This work addresses the question of how much dialogue is needed to ...

Journal of Interactive Learning Research Vol. 19, No. 2 (April 2008) pp. 293–312
Relations between emotions (affect states) and learning have recently been explored in the context of AutoTutor. AutoTutor is a tutoring system on the Internet that helps learners construct answers to difficult questions by interacting with them in...
Exploring the Deep-Level Reasoning Questions Effect during Vicarious Learning among Eighth to Eleventh Graders in the Domains of Computer Literacy and Newtonian Physics
Barry Gholson; Amy Witherspoon; Brent Morgan; Joshua K. Brittingham; Robert Coles; Arthur C. Graesser; Jeremiah Sullins; Scotty D. Craig
Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 37, No. 5 (September 2009) pp. 487–493
This paper tested the deep-level reasoning questions effect in the domains of computer literacy between eighth and tenth graders and Newtonian physics for ninth and eleventh graders. This effect claims that learning is facilitated when the materials ...

Cognitive Science Vol. 31, No. 1 (2007) pp. 3–62
It is often assumed that engaging in a one-on-one dialogue with a tutor is more effective than listening to a lecture or reading a text. Although earlier experiments have not always supported this hypothesis, this may be due in part to allowing the...
