HCI International, the premier human-computer interaction conference, will this year feature two joint papers by DI employees. Jennifer Riley and Christina Padron co-authored a paper with the Army Research Laboratory’s Rodney Long titled “Using Mobile Technology to Generate Learning Content for an Intelligent Tutoring System.” The group researched effective ways for guiding users in developing reusable learning objects (RLOs) to support adaptive, distributed learning. The paper resulted in the creation of a mobile app that guides users in RLO creation, while providing support to include multimedia assets and performance assessments within the RLOs offering a shareable solution.
Riley also collaborated on a publication with Benjamin Goldberg and Michael Boyce of Army Research Lab and Fleet Davis of Humanproof. “Adaptive Training across Simulations in Support of a Crawl-Walk-Run Model of Interaction” illustrates an approach to training management that exploits complimentary instructional capabilities in simulation-based training environments to build a set of skills across multiple exercises and scenarios. The work is based on the Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) and discusses the development of tools and methods to author and deliver adaptive training content grounded in skill development.
