Scenario-based Training: Director’s Cut
van den Bosch, K.
Biswas, G. (editor)
Research regarding autonomous learning shows that freeplay does not result in optimal learning. Combining scenario-based training with intelligent agent technology offers the possibility to create autonomous training enriched with automated adaptive support delivered by a director agent. We conducted an experiment to investigate whether directing training scenarios improves the quality of training. Six instructors rated video fragments of directed and non-directed scenarios in terms of learning value. Results show that the instructors consider directed scenarios to be considerably more effective for learning than non-directed scenarios. Implications for the design of a director agent are discussed.
