= INVITATION: Workshop Intelligent tutoring systems =


Dear Education and Learning Innovator,

April 12th CEL is proud to offer  a workshop by Dr. Vincent Aleven on Intelligent Tutoring Systems.  This workshop offers a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the Cognitive Tutor Authoring Tools (CTAT) developed by Vincent and his colleagues.  The workshop targets people from many backgrounds: instructional research/design, education, educational psychology, educational technology, human-computer interaction and does not require programming skill.

Vincent Aleven is Associate Professor in Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (USA). In his keynote address at the 2016 CEL Annual Meeting, he  presented a non-programmer approach to authoring intelligent tutoring systems, CTAT, and in particular ‘example-tracing tutors’. Intelligent tutoring systems (including example-tracing tutors) support learning-by-doing through complex problem-solving scenarios. They provide adaptive feedback and hints with the steps of problems, and are capable of individualized problem selection based on a learner model. Five recent meta-reviews indicate that intelligent tutoring systems can help students learn better, compared to other forms of instruction.

Tutors built with CTAT can be easily embedded in many learning management systems, e-learning platforms, and MOOC platforms, through integration based on the SCORM and LTI e-learning interoperability standards, or through integration as an edX Xblock. They can also be deployed in Tutorshop, a learning management system developed by the Erasmus University, specifically geared towards intelligent tutoring systems, that is available for research or piloting purposes.

Kind regards,
Vincent Aleven, Sylvia Walsarie Wolff, and Bas Giesbers
