Computer-Based Learning Environments (Winter 2001)
Welcome to the 590D Winter 2001 home page!
Tuesdays 12:30-1:20 (Meetings in EE1 031 most of the time. See the
schedule below for the exceptions).
CSE Faculty Coordinator: Steve Tanimoto
GENERAL TOPIC: The design of computer-based learning environments.
Inference of student models from evidence gathered during processes of
construction and communication.
Intelligent support for configuring or building learning environments.
Learning environments for computer programming.This is an interdisciplinary
seminar, typically involving participants from CSE, Cognitive Psychology,
the College of Education's Curriculum and Instruction program, and EE.
Our activities include reading and discussing recent papers, critiquing
software systems, designing components of computer-based learning environments,
and occasionally, visiting classrooms to observe K-12 or undergraduate
students interacting with computers.

supports the development of rules that can automatically analyze student
postings for particular text patterns that may suggest particular misconceptions
about the subject matter.
