Productive times!

Our journal paper on using virtual landscapes for student feedback has now been accepted and should hopefully be published soon in the British Journal of Education Technology. One more task off my desk and that has allowed me to play a bit – and by play I mean that have had time to write c# programs to use Q-learning and Sarsa reinforcement learning algorithms in an XNA program. I have some fun research ideas that I want to play around with – looking at dealing with large state-action value spaces.
Since Metaplace has died I have switched to using Kodu with my Foundation year Computing classs – that seems to be going quite well so far, though the first assignment is only due tomorrow.
