  2. Treating metadata as annotations: separating the content markup from the content

    Fredrik Paulsson, Umeå University, IML, Sweden; Jonas Engman, Center for IT in Northern Sweden, Sweden

    The use of digital learning resources creates an increasing need for semantic metadata, describing the whole resource, as well as parts of resources. Traditionally, schemas such as Text Encoding... More

  3. Ubiquitous Pointing and Drawing

    Kristian Jantz, Institut für Informatik, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany; Gerald Friedland, International Computer Science Institute, Berkeley (CA), USA, United States; Raul Rojas, Institut für Informatik, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany

    This paper presents a system that enables a presenter to work directly on the projection without the typical interruption of the presentation flow being caused by a mouse or keyboard activity. The ... More

  4. Diagnostic models of intelligent tutor system for teaching skills to solve algebraic equations

    Andrey Chukhray, Anatoliy Kulik & Marina Chukhray, Ukraine

    In this paper one solution for teaching skills to solve n-power algebraic equation by Lobachevsky-Greffe-Dandelen method is described. Studentâ??s mistakes are discovered and classified. Based on... More

    Marilyn Kell & Robyn Gregson, University of Western Sydney, Australia

    The central focus of this paper is the authorsâ?? experiences developing an online program to assist students improve their academic writing and referencing skills in response to increasingly poor ... More

  6. How do we learn models? Introducing the supposed range vs. real range hypothesis

    Frederic Robert, Universite Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium

    We present a general learning model explaining in more depth how we learn (or fail to learn) models and theories. It specifically addresses the phenomenon of preconceptions introduced by the... More

  7. Tailored Solutions to Problems Resolution â?? An Experimental Validation of a Cognitive Computational Knowledge Representation Model

    Mehdi Najjar & Andre Mayers, University of Sherbrooke (canada), Canada; Kouihong Vong & Sebastien Turcotte

    In spite of an increasing development of virtual and distant applications which use the advantages of multimedia and the Internet for distance education, learning by means of such tutorial tools... More
