Research Institution
Not Available IET's goal for Phase I is to define, implement, and evaluate a suite of software components for elicitation and presentation of expertise in video media form for interactive instructional systems. Our software tools will have three dialogue interfaces to service three classes of users respectively: (1) domain experts, (2) domain novices (students), and (3) instructional system developers who customize the interfaces for a given combination of training objectives, experts and students. For the run-time instructional systems we propose, there are two primary modes of user system interaction. In Expertise Acquisition (EA) mode, the system elicits information from the domain expert in order to create structured material that can be accessed later through conversational user interfaces. During Expertise Presentation (EP), the system interacts with a student to present the material collected during EA. Both EA and EP are to be accomplished through dialogue interfaces; though the two dialogue modes differ in their treatment of detected dialogue errors, their use of initiative, and their reliance on speech for input and output.
