Mathematical Modeling of Cooperative E-Learning Performance in Face to Face Tutoring (Ant Colony System Approach)
Keywords:Ant Colony System Optimization, Cooperative Learning, Computational Intelligence, E-Learning Systems, Traveling Sales Man Problem.
Investigational analysis and evaluation of cooperative learning phenomenon is an interdisciplinary and challenging educational research issue. Educationalists have been interesting in modeling of human's cooperative learning to investigate its analogy with some learning aspects of observed social insect behavior. Specifically, this paper presents realistic modeling inspired from interdisciplinary integrated fields of ecology, education ,and animal behavior learning sciences. Presented modeling considers cooperative behavioral learning at ant colony system (ACS). That's motivated by qualitative simulation results obtained after running of an ACS algorithm searching for optimal solution of Travelling Salesman Problem (TSP). In the context of computational intelligence ; cooperative ACS algorithm reaches optimal TSP solution analogously to convergence process of Hebbian coincidence learning paradigm. Moreover, suggested mathematical modeling presents diversity of positive interdependence aspect observed during human's interactive cooperative learning. Interestingly, presented analysis and evaluation of mathematically modeled practical insights of adopted phenomenon, may shed light on promising future enhancement of cooperative learning performance.
