Intellectual

Tutoring

Systems

-

ITS

(animated

robots)
.


The

sequence

of

curriculum

is

made

so

that

the

student

may

easily

adapt

himself/herself,

besides

material

is

demonstrated

to

the

student

just

when

he/she

needs

it
.


ITS

gives

detailed

feedback

to

the

learner

on

the

imperfect

or

false

solution,

helping

to

learn

from

ones

mistakes
.


Problem

solving

methods

-

little

help

is

provided

to

the

learner,

so

the

right

solution

is

achieved
.


ITS

is

an

adaptive

computer
-
based

system


ITS

uses

methods

of

artificial

intelligence

(natural

language

processing,

knowledge

representation



knowledge

of

problem

domain,

pedagogical

knowledge

and

knowledge

about

student,

inference,

and

machine

learning


ITS

ensures

adaptive

and

individualized

tutoring,

it

partly

simulates

a

human

teacher
.


ITS

is

based

on

tutoring

and

cognitive

theory
.



Assist

learners

in

identifying

their

false

beliefs,

becoming

aware

of

their

misconceptions

and

inadequacies,

and

reconstructing

their

knowledge
.


Help

learners

to

determine

performance

expectations,

identify

what

they

have

already

learned

and

what

they

are

able

to

do,

and

judge

their

personal

learning

progress
.


Support

learners

towards

the

achievement

of

the

underlying

learning

goals
.


In

former

studies

e
-
learning

systems

mostly

have

been

formed

as

systems

for

information

supply,

where

lectures

or

distance

learning

materials

are

available

in

e
-
format
.


In

the

latest

researches

target

has

been

set

to

individualized

e
-
learning

system,

directed

to

the

student
.


Technology

enhanced

learning

have

adaptation

gaps,

where

one

of

the

solutions

is

ITS



where

realization

of

adaptation

is

made,

so

that

ITS

is

brought

nearer

to

the

person’s

ability

to

learn

(best

examples

IKAS

and

COMPASS)
.


When

analyzing

existing

ITS

we

may

conclude

that

their

development

is

progressing,

but

still

it

is

not

at

the

level

where

ITS

fully

realizes

adaptive

training
.


ITS

drawbacks,

elaborating

and

research

is

very

current

topic

because

of

e
-
learning

privileges,

thereby

we

may

consider

development

in

the

direction

of

ITS

to

overcome

their

imperfections
.

Thank you for attention!
