To improve the interaction between students and an intelligent tutoring system, we developed two Natural Language generators, that we systematically evaluated in a three way comparison that included the original system as well. We found that the generator which intuitively produces the best language does engender the most learning. Speciﬁcally, it appears that functional aggregation is responsible for the improvement.
We describe a set of supervised machine learning experiments centering on the construction of statistical models of WH-questions. These models, which are built from shallow linguistic features of questions, are employed to predict target variables which represent a user’s informational goals. We report on different aspects of the predictive performance of our models, including the inﬂuence of various training and testing factors on predictive performance, and examine the relationships among the target variables. ...
In this paper we compare different approaches to extract deﬁnitions of four types using a combination of a rule-based grammar and machine learning. We collected a Dutch text corpus containing 549 deﬁnitions and applied a grammar on it. Machine learning was then applied to improve the results obtained with the grammar. Two machine learning experiments were carried out. In the ﬁrst experiment, a standard classiﬁer and a classiﬁer designed speciﬁcally to deal with imbalanced datasets are compared.
Learning PHP 5 is the ideal tutorial for graphic designers, bloggers, and other web crafters who want a thorough but non-intimidating way to understand the code that makes web sites dynamic. The book begins with an introduction to PHP, then moves to more advanced features: language basics, arrays and functions, web forms, connecting to databases, and much more. Complete with exercises to make sure the lessons stick, this book offers the ideal classroom learning experience whether you're in a classroom or on your own....
This work describes an answer ranking engine for non-factoid questions built using a large online community-generated question-answer collection (Yahoo! Answers). We show how such collections may be used to effectively set up large supervised learning experiments. Furthermore we investigate a wide range of feature types, some exploiting NLP processors, and demonstrate that using them in combination leads to considerable improvements in accuracy.
With just one question: "Did you learn English as what?" Will have thousands of different answers based on each person's learning experience. Some people practice their English skills by listening to music and watch foreign films, but also buried in the book with both a storehouse of infinite knowledge without knowing what are the stops. All these experiences are very useful but the important thing is to further develop their own habits to learn English every day - a simple task but it is very powerful in boosting your English ability ....
Learning Perl , better known as "the Llama book", starts the programmer on the way to mastery. Written by three prominent members of the Perl community who each have several years of experience teaching Perl around the world, this latest edition has been updated to account for all the recent changes to the language up to Perl 5.8. Perl is the language for people who want to get work done.
Beginning C for Arduino is written for those who have no prior experience with microcontrollers or programming but would like to experiment and learn both. This book introduces you to the C programming language, reinforcing each programming structure with a simple demonstration of how you can use C to control the Arduino family of microcontrollers. Author Jack Purdum uses an engaging style to teach good programming techniques using examples that have been honed during his 25 years of university teaching....
English is the key learning area where students develop knowledge, skills and understandings about English language and literature. K–6 syllabuses in New South Wales are organised in broad stages that describe the sequence of learning experiences through which students will progress. The outcomes and content in this English K–6 Syllabus are organised in three strands.

The field of machine learning is concerned with the question of how to construct computer programs that automatically improve with experience. In recent years many successful machine learning applications have been developed, ranging from data-mining programs that learn to detect fraudulent credit card transactions, to information-filtering systems that learn users' reading preferences, to autonomous vehicles that learn to drive on public highways. At the same time, there have been important advances in the theory and algorithms that form the foundations of this field....
The Strategic Learning concept presented in this book owes a
lot to the two great learning laboratories that have shaped
The first was my two decades as a CEO. These years infused in
me a strong sense of pragmatism. Life in the trenches, I discovered,
is always messy. So the most important question to ask about any
business idea is simply, Does it work? In these pages, I’ve tried to
capture some of the ideas that do work, so that my colleagues in
business leadership may benefit from them....

Learning styles and pedagogy in post-16 learning A systematic and critical review
This report critically reviews the literature on learning styles and examines in detail 13 of the most influential models. The report concludes that it matters fundamentally which instrument is chosen. The implications for teaching and learning in post-16 learning are serious and should be of concern to learners, teachers and trainers, managers, researchers and inspectors.
