Abstract

In Interactive Learning Environments for conceptual knowledge, novice learners need support with understanding the used qualitative vocabulary, interpreting the simulation results, and knowing which modeling tasks can be performed. We explain how we generate support automatically, without making a priori assumptions regarding the domain knowledge involved. Assistance is contextualized and generated on the fly, even for complex models and simulations.
