This Style Guide is intended primarily for English-language authors and translators,
both in-house and freelance, working for the European Commission. But now that so

Readers will find several papers that address high-level issues in the use of technology in education, for example architecture and design frameworks for building online education materials or tools. Several other chapters report novel approaches to intelligent tutors or adaptive systems in educational settings.

and marking scheme, references and other resources. The unit directs you to work
on exercises related to the required reading. In general this exercise questions you
on the material you have just covered or required you to apply it in some way and

We discuss Feature Latent Semantic Analysis (FLSA), an extension to Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA). LSA is a statistical method that is ordinarily trained on words only; FLSA adds to LSA the richness of the many other linguistic features that a corpus may be labeled with. We applied FLSA to dialogue act classiﬁcation with excellent results. We report results on three corpora: CallHome Spanish, MapTask, and our own corpus of tutoring dialogues.
Definitions of “program” may vary. Generally, a program constitutes some set of
activities with a defined objective, such as an employment training program, a tutoring
or mentoring program, a sports program, or a literacy development program for
