  • Learning theories such as Vygotsky's social constructivism are a case in point. This highlights the way in which discussion can engender learning. If a student is learning alone, how can they have dialogue and therefore learn?
  • Perhaps Laurillard’s conversational framework?
  • Guedes, Gilleanes Thorwald Araujo and Vicari, Rosa Maria (2010) A UML Profile Oriented to the Requirements Modeling in Intelligent Tutoring Systems Projects . Paper presented at World Computer Congress, Brisbane. This is derived from a kind of programming called agent-based programming. The term "agent" describes a software abstraction , an idea, or a concept, similar to OOP terms such as methods, functions , and objects. A common example of an agent is a net-bot program which scours the internet for particular data or suitable combinations.
