Human-Machine Communication for Educational Systems Design

Overview

A fundamental goal of human-machine communication is to increase the useful bandwidth across the interface. Research should start with studies of human communication channels and work toward devices and techniques using those channels. This volume in the NATO Special Programme on Advanced Educational Technology discusses the theme in the context of educational systems. It addresses the state of the art in the design of educational systems with respect to theories, enabling technologies, advanced applications, and...

Overview

A fundamental goal of human-machine communication is to increase the useful bandwidth across the interface. Research should start with studies of human communication channels and work toward devices and techniques using those channels. This volume in the NATO Special Programme on Advanced Educational Technology discusses the theme in the context of educational systems. It addresses the state of the art in the design of educational systems with respect to theories, enabling technologies, advanced applications, and implementation issues. The papers are grouped into four parts: fundamentals of human perception and reasoning; new media - enabling technologies; artificial intelligence, software and design techniques; and advanced applications. This volume in the NATO Special Programme on Advanced Educational Technology addresses the state of the art in the design of educational systems with respect to theories, enabling technologies, advanced applications, and implementation issues.
