Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
LNK Corp proposes to design a low-cost, domain-independent, knowledge-based, tabletop Intellident Tutoring System (ITS) tool that will enable rapid prototyping and deployment of domain-specific ITS applications. This design will include a Teacher Module thqt can dynamically adapt its teaching strategies and styles in response to the user profile. It will include a Student Profile Module to maintain a dynamic model of the student throughout the course of each instruciton session and will enable such profiles to be stored for future sessions. In additon, an Expert Module will be included for modelling the domain of each ITS developed. An adaptive authoring environment will be designed to facilitate rapid development of domain specific ITSs. To demonstrate the feasiblity of the proposed ITS tool, a preliminary prototype will be developed and presented. Based on the Phase I recommendations, design, and demonstrations, Phase II willentatil the development of the ITS toolkit prototype.
