Introduction


Information and Communication Technology (ICT), esp. the Internet and the World Wide Web, has been revolutionizing education. Educational systems are computerized and networked. They are virtual worlds. They become fertile soil for artificial intelligence (AI) that makes educational systems smart and efficient for both educators and learners. For example, the Internet is an ideal non-physical world for intelligent agents. Also the only limitation in them is imagination. When we work together, we can make things happen.
We are a group of researchers who devote our attention to the study of AI for education. We live in different cities of the world. We meet online frequently via Skype or Adobe connect. Thanks to the funding from NSERC, CFI, and Athabasca University of Canada, our group's research themes include:

  • Multiagent Systems
  • Mixed and Augmented Reality (MAR)
  • Animated Pedagogical Agents
  • Program Planning and Scheduling
  • Social Intelligence and Emotional Intelligence
  • Virtual Worlds for Education
  • User modeling
  • Collaborative AR for e-Learning
  • Multi-learner Adaptive Testing Games
  • Adaptive Learning etc.
