Abstract

Simulation is characterized by strong learning potential, providing the basis for a new category of systems, the simulation-based learning systems. To strengthen the learning potential of these systems, models are needed not only of the actual system being imitated, but also of the operational expertise required to carry out manipulations of the simulated system, inherently linked to learning. In this paper, an architecture is reported aimed at supporting the organization of multimodal simulation resources to induce skills learning. This architecture is based on distinct layers, allowing independent representation of learning and simulation components. Its applicability has been demonstrated by means of a paradigm, including simulation of X-ray imaging procedure, as well as authoring of learning scenarios pertaining to such procedures.
