Open learner models (OLM) are learner models which are accessible to the learner, allowing them to view, and sometimes modify, their model. This openness may raise questions of learner trust in their learner model: if users do not agree with, or trust the information they can see about themselves, their trust in the interaction will likely be reduced. Using… (More)
This paper introduces two independent open learner models (learner models that are accessible to user viewing), which are deployed alongside university courses to facilitate self-assessment skills, planning and independent learning. OLMlets is used in specific courses, while UK-SpecIAL, a modular extension to OLMlets, draws on the OLMlets learner models to… (More)
This paper introduces t-OLM, an open learner model to investigate user trust in a range of learner model externalisations. It was found that, while sufficient levels of use were made to suggest user trust in an externalised learner model, the relationship between trust and perceived utility, perceived accuracy, and level of understanding of the model… (More)
Open learner models (OLM) enable users to access their learner model to view information about their understanding. Opening the learner model to the learner may increase their perceptions of how a system evaluates their knowledge and updates the model. This raises questions of trust relating to whether the learner believes the evaluations are correct, and… (More)
We consider open learner models (OLM) with reference to adaptive navigation support and learner control. Our purpose is to assess the potential of a greater range of OLMs in adaptive educational hypermedia. We introduce five OLMs, discuss how these might be applied, and present learner reactions.
Position Statement: Summary This position statement builds on arguments for developing open learner models to provide formative assessment opportunities and promote learner reflection. We suggest that students do use open learner models for such metacognitive activities, illustrated by their behaviour when using learner models that they can directly edit.… (More)
— The number of people involved in electronic commerce is growing. Mobile banking, which was introduced by developing mobile technology, is a newly adopted technology in electronic commerce. Mobile banking is accepted as part of the daily lives of people, but focusing on merely adopting this technology is insufficient. Managers should go far beyond to… (More)
— Open learner models (OLM) is an adaptive learning system that externalise the learner model contents to the user. OLMs assist learners in tracking their knowledge, and promote independent learning by offering information about their knowledge that the learner would not usually see (e.g. a breakdown of concept understanding or descriptions of… (More)
