Intelligent Tutoring

Intelligent Tutoring Systems Consulting Services

Stottler Henke

These scenario-based tutoring systems encourage students to assess situations, generate solutions, make decisions, and carry out actions in realistically complex situations. By embedding or interfacing with training simulators, the tutoring systems monitor student actions performed within the simulator, evaluate these actions to assess the student's knowledge and skills, and apply these assessments to generate highly-specific, individualized instruction. Students gain exposure to many typical and exceptional situations, so they acquire expertise rapidly and efficiently. Solutions include intelligent tutors that emulate expert instructors, authoring tools that streamline tutoring systems development, and integrated training systems that combine simulations and automated instruction.
