I-TUTOR, which stands for Intelligent Tutoring for Lifelong Learning is to be applied in open source learning environments, and will monitor, track, analyze and give formative assessment and feedback to students within the learning environment while giving input to tutors and teachers involved in distance learning to enhance their role during the process of teaching. Find out more on the project blog and website at http://www.intelligent-tutor.eu.
Funded with support from the European Commission, the project started in January 2012 and is a partnership between the University of Macerata as coordinating institution, and the University of Palermo, University of Reading, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, ITEC, Militos, and Eden.
Reaching the midterm in the project, the partnership has published its first project newsletter to share the results achieved – including a comprehensive study of intelligent tutoring systems as well as an open source code for a survey chatbot that anyone is welcome to test.
The team would welcome any feedback and suggestions. To find out more, or let them know what you think, contact Karsten Lundqvist, Lecturer in the School of Systems Engineering here at Reading.
