Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThis session is about a proposal for an enhancement of interactivity in e-Learning. Arousing students' intellectual curiosity and raising their motivation to learn are the two great hurdles for e-Learning contents developers. It is proposed that the interaction in the communication between the teacher and his/her students in a regular classroom could be maintained in e-Learning with the help of Virtual Tutor, which appears on the learning contents in a timely fashion to give learners advice, encouragement, reminders, and such. The session includes demonstrations of the developed system. It is demonstrated that the learning environment where human interactivity is essential can be reconstructed in terms of the proposed Virtual Tutor.
