We introduce a model for the implementation of human-centered adaptive systems in the field of e-learning. We use ontologies to create a machine-processable representation of learners, learning content and their semantics. We also introduce the concept of “Cognitive Space Time”, abbreviated as CST. This is a multi-dimensional hyperspace the dimensi...

Didactical methods and models of learning are determined by the questions of where learning content is stored and how it is accessed. The digital transformation of information storage and access therefore necessitates new models of learning and dramatic changes in educational systems. In this article, these new learning paradigms are outlined, clas...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper, educational and technical challenges for applying learn-ing pathways in Massive(ly) Open Online Courses in higher education are out-lined. We argue that quality issues and didactical concerns may be overcome by (1) reverting to small Open Educational Resources that are (2) adaptively joined into concise courses by considering (3) pre...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The EU FP7 project INTUITEL provides a novel adaptive learning environment, which is neither test-driven nor curriculum-based. Although based on ontologies, it extends these by an innovative concept of learning pathways and a subsequent ranking algorithm. The resulting environment is in line with pedagogical models and cognitive theories and will b...
Article
Full-text available
When learners may select among different alternatives, or are guided to do so by an adaptive learning environment (ALE), it is generally meaningful to discuss the concept of different learning pathways. Pedagogically, these learning pathways may either be defined macroscopically, e.g. in terms of desired learning outcomes or competencies, or micr...
Article
Full-text available
In this contribution it is argued, that quality issues and didactical concerns of MOOCs may be overcome by relying on small Open Educational Resources, joining them into concise courses by glueing them together along predefined learning pathways with proper semantic an- notations. Such a merger does not only require conceptual work and correspondin...

Learning with computers has become a quasi-standard in the industry and also changes traditional educational systems. However, the substantial advantages of technology enhanced learning are also confronted by some challenges. The EU-project INTUITEL does in this context address the problems that result from the asynchronous communication between le...
Preprint
Full-text available
While there are many ontologies and metadata standards available in the field of Technology Enhanced Learning that support adaptive learning pathways, hardly any of these ontologies and metadata standards are ready for use and applied in professional education. Thus we suggest a simple metadata system (SMS) that considers educational theories, is k...

In a hot system every excitation acquires a finite lifetime, manifesting itself in a non-zero spectral width. Ordinary damping as well as quantum memory effects arise from this nontrivial spectral function. This report presents an alternative method for the self-consistent calculation of the spectral width of a fermion coupled to massless bosons: T...

The thermalization time for a Quark-Gluon-Plasma is estimated from a quantum transport model beyond the quasi-particle approach (or kinetic gas theory). While our ansatz is crude concerning the properties of ''real'' quarks and gluons, it nevertheless takes very serious the basic principles of quantum field theory for non-equilibrium states. It is...

Causality requires, that the (anti-) commutator of two interacting field operators vanishes for space-like coordinate differences. This implies, that the Fourier transform of the spectral function of this quantum field should vanish in the space-like domain. We find, that this requirement imposes some constraints on the use of resummed propagators...

In-medium interactions of a particle in a hot plasma are considered in the framework of thermal field theory. The formalism to calculate gauge-invariant rates for photon and dilepton production from the medium is given. In the application to a QED plasma, astrophysical consequences are pointed out. The photon production rate from strongly interacti...

The description of thermal or non-equilibrium systems necessitates a quantum field theory which differs from the usual approach in two aspects: 1.The Hilbert space is doubled; 2.Stable quasi-particles do not exist in interacting systems. A mini-review of these two aspects is given from a practical viewpoint including two applications. For thermal s...

For thermal equilibrium systems it is shown, how the Kubo-Martin-Schwinger boundary condition may be used to factorize the generating functional of Green functions at least on the level of the full two-point function. Genuine non-equilibrium system exhibit correlations that one may also incorporate in the path integral. One one hand this provides a...

Field mixing transformations are studied in quantum field theory and the generator of the transformations is found to induce an SU(2) coherent structure in the vacuum state, both for bosons and for fermions. The Fock space for mixed fields is unitarily inequivalent to the Fock space of the unmixed fields in the infinite volume limit. We study neutr...
