A Framework for Designing and Analysing Open Learner Modelling

  title={A Framework for Designing and Analysing Open Learner Modelling},
  author={S. Bull and J. Kay},
Abstract. Recently learner models have been opened to the learners they represent. However, as yet there is no standard way of describing and analysing open learner models. This is in part due to the variety of issues that can be important or relevant in any particular model. Nevertheless, this lack of a framework to discuss open learner models makes it difficult to compare the features of open learner models in different systems. We believe this is a serious barrier to the effective use of… Expand

SMILI☺: a Framework for Interfaces to Learning Data in Open Learner Models, Learning Analytics and Related Fields
  • S. Bull, J. Kay
  • Computer Science
  • International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education
  • 2015
A revised and simpler version of SMILI☺ is presented, offering this as a guide for designers of interfaces for OLMs, learning analytics and related fields, and highlighting the areas where there is need for more research. Expand
SMILIJ: A Framework for Interfaces to Learning Data in Open Learner Models, Learning Analytics and Related Fields
The SMILIJ (Student Models that Invite the Learner In) Open Learner Model Framework was created to provide a coherent picture of the many and diverse forms of Open Learner Models (OLMs). The aim wasExpand
Enhancing learning through opening the group model in a synchronous computer-based environment
The conclusion is made that in these specific circumstances, learners benefit more from learning and seeing their group learner model, than those who cannot see these learner models. Expand
Designing learner-controlled educational interactions based on learning/cognitive style and learner behaviour
It is suggested that while style information can be used to inform the design of learning environments that accommodate learners' individual differences, it would be wise to recommend interactions based on learners' behaviour. Expand
Web-based Adaptive Learning Environments and Open Learner Model – Use in Didactics of Informatics
In the context of this dissertation, issues concerning adaptive Web-based learning environments, the Open Learner Model and its exploitation towards the enhancement of the teaching and learningExpand
Cooperative Student Assessment Method: an Evaluation Study
A cooperative student modeling method (Cooperative Student Assessment - CSA) which builds a joint system-student assessment of student's activities on the basis of the studentâ??s self-assessment ability estimation and a prototype system for children, addressing the learning of fractions, in which CSA is implemented. Expand
Towards a constructivist approach in the design of Adaptive Educational Systems
In this paper we present a web-based adaptive educational system, named ProSys, designed on principles for project-based and case-based learning. The initial phase of the formative evaluation of theExpand
A Web-based Case-based Learning Environment – Use in the Didactics of Informatics
The present dissertation examines the didactic uti lization of cases, specifically through digital learning environments. The review of existing digital case-based learning environments indicated theExpand
An Experiment to Evaluate how to Better Present User Models to the Users
A social recommender system in a cultural events domain (iCITY) as case study is used and a study aimed at evaluating different ways to represent and visualize user models is presented. Expand
Investigating learner preferences in an open learner model (OLM) program: A Malaysian case study
It is revealed that learning preferences can impact on learners' attitudes towards the use of open learner models and this result will assist designers to develop more effective open learners models for improving the performance of technology-assisted teaching and learning. Expand


STyLE-OLM: Interactive Open Learner Modelling
  • V. Dimitrova
  • Computer Science
  • Int. J. Artif. Intell. Educ.
  • 2003
It is argued that IOLM is a fruitful approach which may be employed in intelligent learning environments both for obtaining a better model of a learner's cognitive state and engaging learners in reflective activities. Expand
Learner Know Thyself: Student Models to Give Learner Control and Responsibility
An approach to student modelling where the student can delve into the student model is described, which serves as a basis for planning learning goals, improving communication between the teaching system and the learner, and as an aid to reflection about learning. Expand
Externalising Learner Modelling Representations
ViSMod, an interactive visualization tool for Bayesian learner models and ConceptLab, a knowledge construction and navigation system that uses XML-based conceptual maps to represent the learner's view of the domain are developed. Expand
' Did I say what I think I said , and do you agree with me ? ' : Inspecting and Questioning the Student Model
This paper describes a student model which is open to learner inspection, and whose contents may be jointly negotiated by the student and system. Both the learner and the system have the opportunityExpand
Reactions to Inspectable Learner Models : Seven Year Olds to University Students
This paper examines student reactions to inspectable learner models. We look at a simple example for children as young as 7, and university students using more complex inspectable learner models oneExpand
ELM-ART: An Adaptive Versatile System for Web-based Instruction
It is argued that versatility is an important feature of successful Web-based education systems and ELM-ART, an intelligent interactive educational system to support learning programming in LISP, demonstrates how some interactive and adaptive educational component can be implemented in WWW context and how multiple components can be naturally integrated together in a single system.
