Stage-Based Generative Learning Object Model for Automated Content Adaptation

Vytautas Štuikys, Renata Burbaitė, Kristina Bespalova, Tomas Blažauskas, Dominykas Barisas
2017 Baltic Journal of Modern Computing  
This paper introduces a Stage-Based (SB) Generative Learning Object (GLO) model to specify the learning content. Capabilities of the model are the content automatic generation and adaptation.  ...  The SB model implements the deep internal staging by allocating parameters and functions (objects) into predefined stages according to the given context.  ...  By introducing staging, it is possible to separate the teacher and student context and technological context from the content's context explicitly.  ...
