Article: Distributed adaptive simulation through standards-based integration of simulators and adaptive learning systems.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: We have developed a distributed, standards-based architecture that enables simulation and simulator designers to leverage adaptive learning systems. Our approach, which incorporates an electronic competency record, open source LMS, and open source microcontroller hardware, is a low-cost, pragmatic option to integrating simulators with traditional courseware.Studies in health technology and informatics 01/2012; 173:48-52.

ABSTRACT: Conventional intelligent or adaptive tutoring online systems rely on domain-specific models of learner behavior based on rules, deep domain knowledge, and other resource-intensive methods. We have developed and studied a domain-independent methodology of adaptive tutoring based on domain-independent signal-processing approaches that obviate the need for the construction of explicit expert and student models. A key advantage of our method over conventional approaches is a lower barrier to entry for educators who want to develop adaptive online learning materials.Studies in health technology and informatics 01/2011; 163:60-4.
