This chapter introduces the cognitive density framework that was used as an underlying development framework within NEXT-TELL. Furthermore, it will introduce the NEXT-TELL independent Open Learner Model (IOLM) as an example of how our tools can be used to increase communicative, content, and temporal density in the classroom in order to gain more insight into students’ learning. Additionally, we will exemplify how the IOLM might enhance classroom orchestration.
