Implementation of Chinese Folklore Virtual Content Using an Expert System


The COVID-19 pandemic has led to increased use of information technology in all community activities, especially in the field of education. One technology used for learning is the virtual laboratory with online learning media. The use of virtual laboratories in Revolution 4.0 was very effective, especially in the current COVID-19 pandemic. Usually, virtual laboratories do not provide feedback to users, especially on how to develop their skills. This study developed a virtual laboratory with personalized Chinese folklore content using artificial intelligence. The ability and willingness of the user are processed by artificial intelligence to determine the model, media and material that the user wants. When tested, this virtual laboratory’s personalization methods obtained an accuracy value of 89.2% according to the users.
