Nested Q-learning of hierarchical control structures

Proceedings of International Conference on Neural Networks (ICNN'96), 1996

The use of externally imposed hierarchical structures to reduce the complexity of learning control is common. However it is clear that the learning of the hierarchical structure by the machine itself is an important step towards more general and less bounded learning. Presented in this paper is a nested Q-learning technique that generates a hierarchical control structure as the robot ...


Work in Progress - Graphical Tools for Self-Evaluation in E-Learning

  • Community Incubator: supporting construction of online learners' community through visualization

    From the viewpoint of social construction ism, community is not defined by external normative structure, but rather locally and contingently constructed through people's communication. Based on this interactive view of community, Community Incubator a Web-based BBS system for online schools, has been designed. The system supports community building through providing participants with resources to talk about their identity, group boundaries, and history of their activities. For this purpose, the system has three functions: (1) autoaddresser; (2) community visualizer; and (3) community editor. This paper discusses how these functions work to assist participants to construct an online community of learners.

  • “E-Learning in corporations”: an elective to augment life long learning skills

    The course "E-learning in corporations" is an elective for bachelor and master students. The course invites students to take on the role of a junior consultant in the field of e-learning and develop life long learning skills. The course is designed after principles of constructivism and connectivism and has a firm basis in authentic high stakes learning tasks where students are challenged to go through all the stages of a real consultancy project. The students' learning activities in the course have a direct link with the deliverables that are connected with the consultancy project. The students start off with exploring the concept of e-learning and state their own learning goals in addition to the general learning goals of the course. Next, the students explore the assignment, write a proposal and execute the project cooperating closely with the company that assigned the project and the teacher in the role of a senior advisor. Both the process and final product are assessed during and at the end of the course.

  • Extending the international dimension of Life Long Learning

    In this paper the contributions of the ELLEIEC project for the international dimension of Life Long Learning (LLL) are described. In the framework of the Thematic Networks Programme, tools such as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), the Tuning Methodology were used in the implementation of an International Curricula Network with accreditation by two European institutions at least. Benchmarks were proposed, in order to show various tools that can be used for the establishment of dual degree programmes.

  • Nested Q-learning of hierarchical control structures

    The use of externally imposed hierarchical structures to reduce the complexity of learning control is common. However it is clear that the learning of the hierarchical structure by the machine itself is an important step towards more general and less bounded learning. Presented in this paper is a nested Q-learning technique that generates a hierarchical control structure as the robot interacts with its world. These emergent structures combined with learned bottom-up reactive reactions result in a flexible hierarchical control system.

  • Work in Progress - Graphical Tools for Self-Evaluation in E-Learning

    Teaching and learning in virtual learning environments (VLEs) are relatively new phenomena and therefore pedagogies for these purposes are still in the early development and experimental stages and are either non-existent or have not reached maturity as yet. In traditional classroom settings, the teacher not only presents the new knowledge to the students, he or she chooses strategies to effectively transfer this knowledge, provides a time schedule, the necessary tests for assessment and continuous evaluation and to some extent the motivation necessary to complete the course. In VLEs and especially in the context of life long learning these support elements are often missing and learners are required to deal with these issues by themselves. We propose interactive graphical tools that help the learners gain metacognitive awareness and facilitate goal setting, time management, planning, self motivation, self assessment and progress tracking. In order to allow interoperability between platforms, current standards in the field have been accounted for

  • Advances in Editors for IMS LD in the TENCompetence Project

  • A web retrieval support system with a comment sharing environment: toward an adaptive web-based IR system

    A search engine is frequently used to look up interesting/unknown topics in web-based exploratory learning, but occasionally it returns meaningless pages (hyperlinks), which can interrupt finding suitable pages. This paper describes a web retrieval support system with a comment sharing environment, which aims at reducing loads in search activity. The effectiveness of this system has been shown through an experiment. This system is not currently adaptive but can be extended to a web-based adaptive IR (information retrieval) system.

  • A strategic analysis of the online learning community for continuing professional development of university faculty in Taiwan: a SWOT analysis

    This paper delineates an instrumental multi-case study conducted in Taiwan with university faculty. The study explores higher education teachers' standpoints concerning adoption of online learning community (OLC) as a strategy for continuing professional development (CPD) taking advantage of the technique frequently applied to program planning or decision making analyses on internal effects of Strength and Weakness as well as external possibilities of Opportunity and Threat (SWOT). In the end, discussions of use of OLC for CPD of university faculty in Taiwan are elaborated.

  • Workflow-based e-learning platform

    E-learning has become one of most important means for the future education, especially for universities. This paper is based on our e-learning teaching experience which comes from one of the leading e-learning university, the University of Southern Queensland. We use the workflow mechanism to analyse the e-learning system. The whole e-learning system is divided into four sub- workflow systems, teaching sub-workflow, learning sub-workflow, admin sub- workflow and infrastructure sub-workflow. Through a coherent analyse of co- relationship of main activities in four sub-workflow systems, some activities are identified as the key elements for the e-learning system. By enhancing these key elements, the performance of all the e-learning workflow gets a significant improvement and e-learning students get better grades than on- campus and traditional distance students. The workflow-based e-learning system can effectively reach the expected achievement of e-learning.

  • Specification of learning trails in virtual courses

    Lifelong learning and goal driven learning create new requirements for virtual online courses. The development of virtual courses is not just a technical challenge, but is also a didactic and pedagogic challenge. In order to cope with the requirements met by heterogeneous student groups of online courses, learning trails are classified, which guide students through a course in different ways. A learning trail can be oriented to the didactic structure or the structure of the subject's scientific domain, to learning units of the same type such as conclusions or exercises, to selective or modal structures. This enables students to use the some online course in a productive and effective way. L3-XML, an XML-DTD, is presented to specify an online course enabling different learning trails. The concept is demonstrated for the "Introduction to object oriented programming" course.
