  • The Inevitable Convergence of DL and ITS ( 1 Article )

    The eventual convergence of distance learning (DL) computer systems, artificially intelligent (AI) dynamic learning content generation computer systems, and Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSes) is inevitable. Human to human education, sometimes called instruction or tutoring, assisted by such advanced computer based technologies could become "better", more accessible, more affordable, and more effective, by a factor of 10 or 100.

    But saying so does not help non-technical educators plan for that eventuality or prepare them to make better informed decisions that let the educators determine which of those technologies are or will be good and best for education.

    In this category "we" list (and will rank and 'tag') web links to Internet articles that this investigator (and her interested volunteer computer technical and computer science friends) think are most informative about emerging trends in these fields.  The content of the articles selected will present their information in non-technical and introductory "light technical" easily understood terms and concepts.

  • Content Management Systems and DL ( 0 Articles )

    The following are tutorial articles and (also there will be) Moodle-based courses located on this web site about content management systems (CMSes) and their uses to create distance learning (DL) web sites.  Initially such articles and any courses will be about using the Joomla CMS for such purposes.

    The level of instruction for educators will be: "computer phobic", "computer novice", "computer literate" (or competent), and "computer experts", assuming in all cases the 'student' has little or no in-depth technical knowledge and experience as computer programmers or system installers.

    Future technical and procedural articles and tutorials about DL (and about ITS as well) will be addressed to bona-fide, experienced: "systems administrators", "computer programmers", "computer systems designers", "web site designers", "web site builders", "computer science students" at the senior and graduate levels in academia as well as for professionals in those fields.  Ideally, eventually, there could be helpful educational resources here, perhaps also model courses or lessons, for college level instructors in those fields as well.

    The level of instruction for educators will be: "computer phobic", "computer novice", "computer literate" (or competent), and "computer experts", assuming in all cases little or no in-depth technical knowledge and experience as computer programmers or system installers.

    Future technical and procedural articles and tutorials about DL (and about ITS as well) will be addressed to: "systems administrators", "computer programmers", "computer systems designers", "computer science students" at the senior and graduate levels.  This information should also be useful to "computer working professionals" in a variety of sub-fields and to "computer science instructors".

  • What happens in AI-Assisted Tutoring? ( 0 Articles )

    What happens in AI-assisted tutoring of human instructors, of human tutors, and of the human students of a class, lesson or a subject?  These actions -- or desired idealized actions -- are the bases of past, current, and emerging intelligent tutoring systems (ITS).
