Formative feedback can provide information about how learners develop their competences in a knowledge domain. This information can determine learners' progress and is essential in suggesting remedial actions which overcome gaps in knowledge. Finding this information, however, is a time consuming task. This paper elaborates the theoretical background of(More)
An adult with Gaucher's disease was injected with liposomes containing human glucocerebroside: beta-glucosidase. After 13 months of treatment the lower border of the right hepatic lobe and moved up 3 cm, and the left lobe had shrunk. Reduction in the size of the liver was associated with relief of pressure symptoms in the left lower abdomen. Scans obtained(More)
Although it has been accepted that osteoporosis is common in women, only recently have we become aware that it is also widespread in men; one in twelve men in the UK have osteoporosis. In many cases, there are recognisable causes for their osteoporosis, but a significant proportion (approximately one third) of these men have idiopathic disease. A major(More)

This paper elaborates on the design of a computer-based service to support conceptual development. Our ambition is provide learners a way to compare their conceptual development against different reference models, so they recognize the limits of their expertise. These models are (semi) automatically generated from learning materials and learner text inputs(More)

(for dissemination) This report explains the issues of positioning learners in a knowledge domain, to recommend learning materials to follow, and diagnosing learners' conceptual development, to provide formative feedback and recommend remedial actions. It also discusses how Language Technologies can be used to perform these two tasks in a (semi) automatic(More)
(for dissemination) Creating common ground is an important element in development processes involving multidisciplinary partners in an innovative project, as is the case in the LTfLL (Language Technologies for Lifelong Learning) project. The SDM (Scenario-based Development Method) we adopted provides the means to communicate about the development process(More)
