Educational Aspects of Identification Software User Interfaces
2003 (English)In: Proceedings of the 13th IFAC Symposium on System Identification, 2003, 1590-1594 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Apparently many users of identification techniques learn the topic only via use of commercial software. This may or may not include the software manual. This means that the software user interface - graphical or not - plays a major role in teaching identification theory and methodology to large number of users. This contribution deals with such educational/pedagogical aspects software user interfaces. In particular we focus on issues to hide certain design variables as defaults, and what can be done in case no defaults are obvious. Other questions are how to force the user to appreciate and understand the quality of an identified model, and to know what optional design choices and methods that are available, in particular if there is no Graphical User Interface (GUI).
