Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology RIGA TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology Institute of Applied Computer Science Trends of the Usage of Adaptive Learning in Intelligent Tutoring Systems Jānis DĀBOLIŅŠ PhD student Jānis DĀBOLIŅŠ Baltic DB & IS 2012 Tenth International Baltic Conference on Databases and Information Systems July 8-11, 2012, Vilnius, Lithuania
Specialized equipment, auditorium facilities, interactive whiteboards etc. Distance learning, Web Seminars – Webinar (Webex), e-learning (Blackboard, Moodle), m-learning (mobile phones) Intellectual Tutoring Systems - ITS (animated pedagogical agents, self- appraisal tests, tutoring 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.
