From Tutoring to Cognitive Rehabilitation: Exploiting CBM to Support Memory Training
Degree GrantorUniversity of Canterbury
Constraint-Based Modeling (CBM) is an effective student modeling approach which has been used successfully in a wide range of instructional domains. Within the Intelligent Computer Tutoring Group (ICTG), we have developed numerous constraint-based tutors and demonstrated their effectiveness in real courses. In this paper, however, we discuss how we use CBM in the area of cognitive rehabilitation after stroke. Our computer-based treatment is aimed at improving prospective memory. Participants are first trained on how to use visual imagery and then practice in a Virtual Reality (VR) environment. We present how we use constraints to track the participant’s progress when performing tasks in the VR environment.
