May 27, 2013

The paper entitled “AmI-RIA: Real-Time Teacher Assistance Tool for an Ambient Intelligence Classroom”, presented by Asterios Leonidis, PhD Candidate at the University of Crete and member of the Human Computer Interaction Laboratory of ICS-FORTH, received the Best Paper Award at the 5th International Conference on Mobile, Hybrid, and On-line Learning (eLmL 2013, Nice, France, 24 February - 1 March 2013).

This work focuses on Ambient Intelligence technologies in the domain of learning and education, and proposes a learner-centric approach to support instructors in improving the learning process in ambient educational environments. The developed system introduces an intelligent multi-agent infrastructure that monitors unobtrusively the students’ activities and notifies the teacher, in real-time, about potential learning weaknesses and pitfalls that need to be addressed.

The paper's authors are: Georgios Mathioudakis (currently Expert Development Engineer at INRIA), Asterios Leonidis, Maria Korozi, Georgios Margetis, Stavroula Ntoa, Dr. Margherita Antona (Human Computer – Interaction Laboratory of ICS-FORTH), and Professor Constantine Stephanidis (ICS-FORTH and University of Crete).
