Abstract

The use of plan recognition in the user interface is presented as a basis for a learning environment within which students can assimilate the range of possible actions and objectives afforded by a target application. Support in the form of “present whereabouts” and “possible progressions” enable students to learn by doing. When combined with a facility for exploratory learning, this helps avoid the onerous air of a “teaching situation”.
