Unleashing the power of Open Educational Practices (OEP) through Artificial Intelligence (AI): Where to begin?
Although much research has been conducted on how AI should be designed and integrated in traditional e-learning systems, little is known about how AI could be embedded within open learning environments or used to enhance the open learning experience, including providing automatic open assessment and modeling, as well as personalized OEP. Additionally, no study in the literature, to the best of our knowledge, investigated how responsible AI is open education (i.e. use of AI with OEP) should be designed and developed.
Therefore, given the background above, this collection further calls for applied findings related to the innovative use of AI in open learning environments to enhance the provided OEP, the ethical concerns of AI in open education, as well as the services provided for both educators and learners in these open learning environments. In doing so, the papers must have theoretical and practical approaches towards effective implementation of (responsible) AI and OEP, combined, for the improvement of the educational setting, whether focused on learners, educators, academic managers or institutions. Any potential target group might be addressed to this extent. The topics for this Collection are varied and include, but are not limited to:
l Smart open learning environments
l Personalized open educational practices
l Automatic open modeling and assessment
l Open learning analytics
l Smart open teaching/learning services
l Open behavior analysis
l AI applied to learner performance in informal and open settings
l AI applied to teacher mentoring in open education contexts
l AI practically implemented towards personalized e-assessment in open education
l Responsible AI in open education
l Learner bias and injustice in open education
l Ethical and regulatory frameworks of AI-based OEP
Please note that all articles submitted to this collection will go through a regular blind review process, and appear online upon acceptance. When submitting a paper to this collection, please select the paper type “collection” on the journal system. If you have any questions, please feel free to email the guest editors of this collection.
