Automatic Classification Techniques In Virtual Environments - The ACTIVE Project: Generating Immediate Feedback to Support Reflective Learning within ePortfolio Contexts

Project: Research project

Project Details


This project aims to support students to reflect on their English language (L2) experience in ePortfolio by making the best use of the affordances of the automatic classification technology. To guide students towards critical reflection, the project will develop an automatic software tool to evaluate levels of student reflection and subsequently generate immediate, adaptive and individualized feedback based on the evaluation results. The project will also investigate the impact of the automatic tool on students' reflective ability. It is expected that by integrating the automatic classification techniques with ePortfolio, the project will create more innovative and interactive learning experiences in reflective practice for students.
