Intelligent Tutoring Systems
Spring 2006


Course Description:

These days, learning with computers happens every day, ranging from simple searches and research on the Internet to complex virtual simulations for training. The assumptions that are made about learners and knowledge form an integral and critical part of these applications. What we learn in building and evaluating these applications also teaches us about creating lifelike artificial intelligence.

This course will explore the cognitive science and computer science techniques used in building Intelligent Tutoring Systems, and the assumptions made in modeling users and influencing their learning processes. In this course, students will read and review current research in this area, and create an intelligent tutoring system as a course project. Readings will be listed on
