The emerging research field Search as Learning (SAL) investigates how the Web facilitates learning through modern information retrieval systems. SAL research requires significant amounts of data that capture both search behavior of users and their acquired knowledge in order to obtain conclusive insights or train supervised machine learning models. However, the creation of such datasets is costly and requires interdisciplinary efforts in order to design studies and capture a wide range of…

IWILDS'22 -- Third International Workshop on Investigating Learning During Web Search

The IWILDS workshop series invites research on complex search activities related to human learning in the World Wide Web, providing an interdisciplinary platform for the presentation and discussion of recent research on human learning on the Web.

Let's Learn from Children: Scaffolding to Enable Search as Learning in the Educational Environment

In this manuscript, we argue for the need to further look at search as learning (SAL) with children as the primary stakeholders. Inspired by how children learn and considering the classroom



Predicting Knowledge Gain During Web Search Based on Multimedia Resource Consumption

This paper investigates whether features representing multimedia resource consumption to predict of knowledge gain (KG) during Web search from in-session data, that is without prior knowledge about the learner, and suggests a set of multimedia features related to image and video consumption.

Analyzing Knowledge Gain of Users in Informational Search Sessions on the Web

This study recruited 500 distinct users and orchestrated real-world search sessions spanning 10 different topics and information needs, revealing a significant effect of information need on user queries and navigational patterns, but no direct effect on the knowledge gain.

Dataset of Search Results Organized as Learning Paths Recommended by Experts to Support Search as Learning

A dataset of curated learning paths (LPs) is introduced to support search as learning and is intended to provide information scientists, education researchers, and industry professionals, who provide information services in educational contexts, a valuable resource to investigate patterns in the order of LPs.

Introducing MANtIS: a novel Multi-Domain Information Seeking Dialogues Dataset

Conversational search is an approach to information retrieval (IR), where users engage in a dialogue with an agent in order to satisfy their information needs. Previous conceptual work described

VideoMem: Constructing, Analyzing, Predicting Short-Term and Long-Term Video Memorability

After an in-depth analysis of the dataset, various deep neural network-based models for the prediction of video memorability are investigated and the best model using a ranking loss achieves a Spearman's rank correlation of 0.494.

The Role of Cognitive Abilities and Time Spent on Texts and Videos in a Multimodal Searching as Learning Task

Preliminary evidence that the time leaners spend on text-dominated websites and on videos might not contribute equally to the acquisition of conceptual knowledge in SAL tasks is provided.

Metacognitive Judgments in Searching as Learning (SAL) Tasks: Insights on (Mis-) Calibration, Multimedia Usage, and Confidence

Metacognitive self-assessments of one's learning performance (calibration) are important elements of Searching as Learning (SAL) tasks. In this SAL study, N = 115 participants were asked to learn for

What makes an image memorable?

It is shown that memorability is a stable property of an image that is shared across different viewers, and a database for which each picture will be remembered after a single view is introduced.

Dataset-driven research for improving recommender systems for learning

An experimental comparison of the accuracy of several collaborative filtering algorithms applied to these TEL datasets are presented and implicit relevance data, such as downloads and tags, that can be used to improve the performance of recommendation algorithms are elaborate.
