Applying Interactive Open Learner Models to Learning Technical Terminology

By Vania Dimitrova, John Self and Paul Brna


Abstract. Our work explores an interactive open learner modelling (IOLM) approach where learner diagnosis is considered as an interactive process involving both a computer system and a learner that play symmetrical (to a certain extent) roles and construct together the learner model. The paper presents an application of IOLM for diagnosing and fostering a learner's conceptual understanding in a terminological domain. Based on an experimental study, we discuss computational and educational benefits of IOLM in terms of improving the quality of the obtained learner model and fostering reflective thinking
