Title: Swarm-based sequencing recommendations in e-learning
Authors: Van Es, René
Issue Date: 12-Sep-2005
Abstract: Presentation given on the ISDA/RAWS conference in Wroclaw.
Description: Open and distance Learning (ODL) gives learners freedom of time, place and pace of study, putting learner self-direction centre-stage. However, increased responsibility should not come at the price of over-burdening or abandonment of learners as they progress along their learning journey. This paper introduces an approach to recommending the sequencing of e-learning modules for distance learners based on self-organisation theory. It describes an architecture which supports the recording, processing and presentation of collective learner behaviour designed to create a feedback loop informing learners of successful paths towards the attainment of learning goals. The article includes results from a large-scale experiment designed to validate the approach .
