This course addresses the use of artificial intelligence to create computer-based intelligent tutoring systems.

This course addresses the use of Artificial Intelligence to create computer-based Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs). Students will learn data-driven and theoretical methods for creating ITSs. ITSs have been demonstrated to dramatically enhance student learning in many domains, including, to name a few, mathematics, computer science, medicine, linguistics, engineering. In addition to discussion and readings about methods and models of problem solving, learning, and tutor design, the course will have a "learning by doing" component.
