  1. 1. Knowledge-Based e-Learning The SINTEC Personalized, Knowledge based systems Knowledge-Based E-Learning Student modeling Environment Reasoning for: Ştefan Trăuşan-Matu 1,2 Student diagnosis Valentin Cristea 1 Explanations generation Octavian Udrea 3 Lesson planning 1Computer Science Department, Bucharest "Politehnica" University, Intelligent interfaces 2Romanian Academy Institute for Artificial Intelligence ROMANIA 3Maryland University, US 1/15/2010 OL-KWM 2005 2 Knowledge Ontologies Learning is a knowledge centered activity: One of the main goals of a learning process is the articulation in the learner’s mind of a body of "An ontology is a specification of a knowledge for the considered domain. conceptualization....That is, an ontology is The skeleton of this body is usually a semantic a description (like a formal specification of network of the main concepts involved in that a program) of the concepts and domain - ONTOLOGY relationships that can exist for an agent or a community of agents" (Gruber) 1/15/2010 OL-KWM 2005 3 1/15/2010 OL-KWM 2005 4 Ontologies used in e-Learning Personalized texts for e-Learning Are adapted to each users': Domain knowledge - student model Tutoring learning style psychological profile Human-computer interfacing goals (e.g. lists of concepts to be learned) Lexical level (novice, expert) Upper Level preferences (e.g. style of web pages) context of interaction 1/15/2010 OL-KWM 2005 5 1/15/2010 OL-KWM 2005 6 1
  2. 2. Student model Intelligent e-Learning Projects at CS-Polytechnic University & ICIA Keeps track of the concepts known, unknown or wrongly known by the student (Dimitrova, Self, Brna, MacPAIL 2000) ITS for programming Inferred from results at tests or from interaction (visited web pages, topics searched etc.) WebGen Is usually defined in relation with the domain LARFLAST ontology (concept net, Bayesian net) SINTEC EU-NCIT COOPER 1/15/2010 OL-KWM 2005 7 1/15/2010 OL-KWM 2005 8 SINTEC (2002-2003) SINTEC INFOSOC- Funded Project Collaborative tools for distance and distributed e-Learning Web services technology for distributed processing Includes experience from ITS and LARFLAST knowledge (ontologies) from the (Semantic) Web Partners : Content creation and reuse from the web, according to metadata standards for e-Learning like IMS, ARIADNE, CS Dept., “Polytechnica” Univ.
