WS2 – Combining Intelligent and Adaptive Hypermedia Methods/Techniques in Web-Based Education System
International Workshop on Combining Intelligent and Adaptive Hypermedia Methods/Techniques in Web-Based Education Systems
There have been a great number of research efforts in designing and implementing web-based education systems that offer personalized education. Personalization concerns educational activities/facilities, like lesson planning, teaching content specification, student evaluation, student collaboration, class monitoring, educational resources recommendation, test generation, etc. Personalization is achieved by using methods/techniques coming from two main sources: Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Adaptive Hypermedia (AH). AI methods/techniques include: knowledge representation (KR), expert systems, AI planning, machine learning, etc. AH methods/techniques include: adaptive text presentation, adaptive link annotation, etc. Also, recently, Web-oriented AI techniques, like web usage mining or filtering techniques, have been emerged. Furthermore, Semantic Web is a source of additional intelligent techniques. So, web-based intelligent/adaptive education systems that combine an AI method/technique either with another AI method/technique or with an AH method/technique for implementing the same or different educational tasks seem to be an interesting research direction.
The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers and developers of web-based education systems to exchange experiences and ideas on how intelligent methods/techniques can be combined with either themselves or adaptive hypermedia methods/techniques for more effective personalized education.
The initial deadline for paper submissions is June, 12th 2005. For details about the submission process and more information about the workshop, see http://mmlab.ceid.upatras.gr/aigroup/ht05-wbies/
