We divide the workflows in groups of different experience levels and provide typical scenarios for each level/group. In all descriptions we refer to the application with the term "trainer" to avoid assumptions about actual applications or experiences with specific applications. Proficiency: Starter Learning for a Test (Camille) goal: Camilla has a vocabulary test in school and has to learn 60 new words she starts the trainer subgoal: she wants to create a learning session containing only the words used in the test she creates a new vocabulary document she adds the 60 words to this list and also provides times for irregular verbs subgoal: she wants to train the words until she really nows them (and not stop earlier she selects the created learning session she selects a flip cards learning mode she trains the words until she is confident that she will pass the test with a good grade observations: this training goal is not suited for Leitner boxes? (there will be no intervals between training sessions) new words must slowly enter set of trained words to provide a feeling of learning success (time interval model?) a simple editor is needed trainer and editor must be able to handle irregular verbs Prepare for Holidays (Gan) goal: Gan has four weeks until his vacations in Barcelona, Spain, and wants to use this time frame to learn daily use phrases in Spanish: he starts the trainer subgoal: he wants to learn what to do with this program/where to start learning he tells the trainer that he wants to learn the basics of Spanish the trainer offers possible ways (lessons/learning plans) to achieve this goal subgoal: he wants to start training immediately for a fixed time interval he starts where the trainer told him to start for this goal he performs flash-card learning until his planned time is over he asks the trainer what he achieved today he closes the program subgoal: he wants to continue learning he starts the trainer he tells the trainer that he want to continue his learning goal (repeat former step) observations: guidance is needed for starters tight integration with learning resources is important stopping and continuing learning must be supported intermediate results should be given Proficiency: Basic Learn Basic Vocabulary (Jan) goal: Jan wants to acquire a basic vocabulary in the chosen language (Thai) He starts the vocabulary trainer and downloads a collection called "500 most common thai words". He starts training using the flashcard training mode He continues with this collection until he knows the words reasonably well and then downloads the next collection (words 501-1000). Observations: Sound is important for this type of training, especially for tonal languages. Downloading collection like this must not include downloading 500 separate sound clips. The collections should be broken up into shorter sessions because 500 words is a lot to bite off (there are no natural "lesson" unit in this type of learning). After the first sessions there will be a mix of new words and partially learned words so a well developed spacing and prioritization algorithm is important. After the first collection is worked through, there will be several collections active at the same time so a good overview of what to do next is important (dashboard). Proficiency: Independent Maintain Vocabulary (Tina) goal: Tina already gained a vocabulary of about 3000 words by using the vocabulary trainer, from which she regularly uses only 1000 words. She want to use the trainer to maintain her vocabulary at the current level (or increase it slightly) by investing only a fixed regular planned time for this. she starts the trainer subgoal: select the training set with words she wants to refresh she selects the language (necessary step?) she selects out of an list of courses/training sets the set she wants to maintain subgoal: she wants to train the words for fixed time period of 1 hour she selects a flip cards learning mode she trains the words she stops training after 1 hour observations: typical case of Leitner box training, where learning breaks are big (~7 days) stopping a training should not have negative effects (statistics correctly stored, etc.) would a training plan be interesting for Tina? (combined with notifications/activities) do we speak about a fixed word set or may it be changed since last learning, and if yes are there consequences for the learning? does Tina always want to refresh everything?
