Adding Intelligence to Net-based Learning

Lynne Hall, Adrian Gordon, Paul Black, and Gary Baptist, University of Northumbria at Newcastle

Much attention is currently being focussed on the use of the World Wide Web as a delivery channel for teaching and learning. A significant problem with the Web as a learning environment is that it does not adapt to the needs of the individual learner. VALIENT is an attempt to add a degree of adaptability to the Web. VALIENT combines conventional Web-based delivery with what are termed Intelligent Learning Environments - virtual learning spaces for experiential learning. The intelligence in these environments is provided by a set of intelligent agents which monitor learner performance. By communicating with a custom servlet running on the Web server, these intelligent agents can cause web-based material to be presented to the learner that are adapted to that learner’s current learning requirements.
