Abstract

Scaffolding is a well-established instructional approach that facilitates learning by incrementally removing training aids as the learner progresses. By combining multiple training aids (i.e. multimodal interfaces), a trainer, either human or virtual, must make real-time decisions about which aids to remove throughout the training scenario. A significant problem occurs in implementing scaffolding techniques since the speed and choice of removing training aids must be strongly correlated to the individual traits of a specific trainee. We detail an agent-based infrastructure that supports the customization of scaffolding routines per individual user. We describe the integration of this agent-based approach into a simulated augmented reality (AR) environment
