Bearing all this in mind, this paper will present the results of evaluation of the Danube, based on model of Hilary Du Cros.

А History of Computer-Based Instruction and its Effects on Developing Instructional Technologies

European Researcher, 2013, Vol.(59), № 9-2, p. 2341-2347.

The purpose of the paper is to discuss instructional and technological developments based on the history of computer-based instruction (CBI). Historically, the development of the CBI movement began in earnest at the end of 1960s and in the early 1970s. At that time, computers, for the first time, began to be used in education, basically for teaching language and mathematics. Historically, CBI emerged from the programmed instruction and teaching machines of the middle of the 1950s. Educational computing began with a few large, government-funded projects on mainframe and minicomputers. At this time, several projects were developed to be utilized in instructional processes, such as PLATO and TICCIT. As a result, the developments after the 1970s will be discussed regarding the CBI process so as to indicate new instructional and technological developments as part of new learning technologies from past to present for students and educators in schools.

Interdisciplinary Approach to the Mental Lexicon: Neural Network and Text Extraction From Long-term Memory

European Researcher, 2013, Vol.(59), № 9-2, p. 2348-2354.

The paper touches upon the principles of mental lexicon organization in the light of recent research in psycho- and neurolinguistics. As a focal point of discussion two main approaches to mental lexicon functioning are considered: modular or dual-system approach, developed within generativism and opposite single-system approach, representatives of which are the connectionists and supporters of network models. The paper is an endeavor towards advocating the viewpoint that mental lexicon is complex psychological organization based upon specific composition of neural network. In this regard, the paper further elaborates on the matter of storing text in human mental space and introduces a model of text extraction from long-term memory. Based upon data available, the author develops a methodology of modeling structures of knowledge representation in the systems of artificial intelligence.
