Enhancing reflective learning experiences in museums through interactive installations (2018)
Journal Article
Hai, H., Lo, W. H., Ng, H. H., Brailsford, T., & O'Malley, C. (2018). Enhancing reflective learning experiences in museums through interactive installations

In this study we examine the effect that several technological affordances have upon the experiences of children while visiting a museum, focusing upon engagement, discussion and reflection. The museum is the Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum in Malacca, M... Read More about Enhancing reflective learning experiences in museums through interactive installations.

© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015. In this work we present a method for the computation of novel ‘ideas’ from corpora of scientific text. The system functions by first detecting concept noun-phrases within the titles and abstracts... Read More about Towards computation of novel ideas from corpora of scientific text.

On the Turing Completeness of the Semantic Web (2014)
Journal Article
Pourabdollah, A., & Brailsford, T. (2014). On the Turing Completeness of the Semantic Web. Theory of Computing Systems, 56(2), 291-308. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00224-014-9536-x

© 2014, Springer Science+Business Media New York. The evidenced fact that “Linking is as powerful as computing” in a dynamic web context has lead to evaluating Turing completeness for hypertext systems based on their linking model. The same evaluatio... Read More about On the Turing Completeness of the Semantic Web.

The ethical and social implications of personalization technologies for e-learning (2014)
Journal Article
Toms, E. G., Sheng, Q. Z., Cristea, A. I., Ashman, H., Brailsford, T., Cristea, A. I., …Wade, V. (2014). The ethical and social implications of personalization technologies for e-learning. Information and Management, 51(6), 819-832. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.im.2014.04.003

Personalization in information systems can be considered beneficial but also ethically and socially harmful. Like many other technologies, the uptake of personalization has been rapid, with inadequate consideration given to its effects. Personalizati...

Translation techniques in cross-language information retrieval (2012)
Journal Article
Zhou, D., Truran, M., Brailsford, T., Wade, V., & Ashman, H. (2012). Translation techniques in cross-language information retrieval. ACM Computing Surveys, 45(1), 1-44. https://doi.org/10.1145/2379776.2379777

Cross-language information retrieval (CLIR) is an active sub-domain of information retrieval (IR). Like IR, CLIR is centered on the search for documents and for information contained within those documents. Unlike IR, CLIR must reconcile queries and...

Evaluating Learning Style Personalization in Adaptive Systems: Quantitative Methods and Approaches (2009)
Journal Article
Brailsford, T. J., Brown, E. J., Brown, E. J., Brailsford, T. J., Fisher, T., & Moore, A. (2009). Evaluating Learning Style Personalization in Adaptive Systems: Quantitative Methods and Approaches. IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2(1), 10-22. https://doi.org/10.1109/TLT.2009.11

It is a widely held assumption that learning style is a useful model for quantifying user characteristics for effective personalized learning. We set out to challenge this assumption by discussing the current state of the art in relation to quantitat...

Adaptive hypermedia system interoperability: A 'real world' evaluation (2007)
Journal Article
Cristea, A., Stewart, C., Brailsford, T., & Cristea, P. (2007). Adaptive hypermedia system interoperability: A 'real world' evaluation

Adaptive Hypermedia (AH) authoring is widely acknowledged to be complex and time consuming, yet this vital process is rarely evaluated. Recent research has approached the authoring problem by ensuring that previously created materials can be converte...

'Authoring once, delivering many': Creating reusable adaptive courseware (2005)
Journal Article
Stewart, C., Cristea, A., Brailsford, T., & Ashman, H. L. (2005). 'Authoring once, delivering many': Creating reusable adaptive courseware

This paper addresses the issue of creating reusable adaptive courseware from the point of view of the author (teacher or instructor). We illustrate the idea of reusability under the motto "Authoring Once, Delivering Many" by showing the conversion pr...

Patterns in authoring of adaptive educational hypermedia: A taxonomy of learning styles (2005)
Journal Article
Brown, E., Cristea, A., Stewart, C., & Brailsford, T. (2005). Patterns in authoring of adaptive educational hypermedia: A taxonomy of learning styles

This paper describes the use of adaptation patterns in the task of formulating standards for adaptive educational hypermedia (AEH) systems that is currently under investigation by the EU ADAPT project. Within this project, design dimensions for high... Read More about Patterns in authoring of adaptive educational hypermedia: A taxonomy of learning styles.

Unified hyperstructures for bioinformatics: Escaping the application prison (2004)

In this paper, we give an overview of the hybrid model, which is a generic user model that is based on measuring and classifying users' knowledge with respect to multiple knowledge domains simultaneously. In addition, we demonstrate how that model is... Read More about Technical note user modelling, and adaptive hypermedia frameworks for education.

Knowledge Tree: Putting discourse into computer-based learning (1997)
Journal Article

Most CBL materials currently in use model only the declarative aspects of the learning process. If such courseware is used without careful planning, this can be dangerous because one of the most fundamental aspects of education is the dialogue that o...
