Educational testing and learning have evolved from using
standard True/False, fill-in-the-blank and multiple choice on
paper to more visually enriched formats using interactive
multimedia content on digital displays. However, traditional
educational application interfaces are primarily mouse-driven,
which prevents multiple users working simultaneously. Although
touch-based displays have emerged and inspired new
developments, they are mainly used in simple tasks. In this paper
we show how the multi-touch technology can be extended to
collaborative learning and testing at a larger scale, using an
existing education implementation for illustration. We propose a
Human-Intention-Machine-Interpretation (HIMI) model, which
