Brusilovsky wins Army Contract to develop social personalized learning architecture
Peter Brusilovsky, Professor at the iSchool, has been awarded a contract by the United States Army Contracting Command to participate in the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative. Brusilovsky’ s contract, for $623,005 over a three-year period, will support his work on the architecture, algorithms, and interfaces for a Personal Assistant for Learning (PAL), one of the major endeavors undertaken by the ADL Initiative. Through a PAL, the Initiative will provide state of the art education and training — using technology and innovative learning methodologies — for workforce members in the Department of Defense and the federal government. Specifically, Brusilovsky will explore the benefits of open social learner modeling and adaptive navigation support to PAL users; he will then develop the infrastructure and algorithms necessary to implement social personalized learning over multiple domains as part of the ADL.
