PIs: Voicu Popescu, Nicoletta Adamo-Villani, Purdue University (Award Details) Susan Cook, University of Iowa (Award Details) Howard Friedman,University of California-Riverside (Award Details) This project addresses the challenge of making avatars used in tutoring systems and other learning technologies more engaging and more effective learning guides. One focus is on making the movements of an avatar […]

EXP: Students Authoring Intelligent Tutoring Systems for Constructing Models of Ill-Defined Dynamic Systems

PIs: Kurt VanLehn, Daniel Childers Arizona State University Award Details The PIs, one expert in intelligent tutoring systems, and the other an expert on ecosystems, are investigating the ways model construction can aid in the understanding of complex dynamic systems, specifically ecosystems and systems involved in sustaining life on our planet. The PIs are particularly […]

EAGER: Pilot Investigation of Using Gaze in a Reading Tutor

PIs: David Mostow, Jessica Nelson-Taylor Carnegie-Mellon University The big question the PIs are addressing in this project is how to unobtrusively track silent reading of novice readers so as to be able to use an intelligent tutoring system to aid reading comprehension. This EAGER project focuses on the first steps in answering that question. This […]
