The Advanced Learning Technologies (ALT) program supports learning technologies research that enables radical improvements in learning through innovative computer and information technologies and advances research in computer science, information technology, learning, and cognitive science through the unique challenges posed by learning environments and learning technology platforms. Integrative research approaches that build across disciplines and establish tight linkages among theory, experiment, and design are strongly encouraged. Technology goals may include systems for tutoring or assessment, modeling and sensing of cognitive or emotional states, context awareness, natural language interfaces, collaboration, and knowledge management. Non-traditional goals that redefine the roles of technology in learning are encouraged.
