Machine Learning in Education and Training
The Seventh International Conference on Machine Learning and Applications (ICMLA’08)
December 11-13, 2008, San Diego , California, USA
With the rapid development of Web-based learning, a new set of learning environments including virtual classrooms, virtual laboratories and virtual universities are being developed. These new learning environments, however, also introduce new problems that need to be addressed. On the technical side, there is a need for the deployment of effective technologies on web-based education. On the learning side, the cyber mode of learning is very different from traditional classroom-based learning. Machine Learning provides new challenges and solutions to the education and training in applications. Machine Learning techniques have found widespread applications in education and training. The aim to invite researchers from various fields to discuss their ideas on education technology and training by using machine learning technologies and construct intelligent learning environments.
