Title (EN) GLOBAL COMPUTER NETWORK TUTORING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME TUTORIEL DE RESEAU INFORMATIQUE GLOBAL
Abstract:
(EN) A global computer network method and apparatus for creating and deploying many types of intelligent tutoring systems across many different platforms is disclosed. A run time engine supports state graph pseudo tutors and JESS model tracing cognitive tutors, in both a client and server context. An Assistment Builder enables development, testing and deployment of the pseudo tutors, generally the tutorials formed of teacher composed problems. The system simplifies the process of tutorial construction to allow educator users with little or no ITS experience to develop content of problems and teaching strategies (i.e., format of problems including hints, messages and sequencing of related problems). The system provides a Web based interface as a means to build and store these tutorials. A reporting component is Web based and allows for live database reporting to teachers, showing how their students are performing. Automated analysis and reporting of experimental tutorials developed by teachers is included.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif pour réseau informatique global, qui sert à créer et à mettre en place différents types de systèmes tutoriels à travers différentes plates-formes. Un moteur de temps d'exécution supporte des pseudo-tuteurs de graphique d'état et des tuteurs cognitifs de tracé de modèle JESS, à la fois dans un contexte client et un contexte serveur. Un assistant de conception permet la mise au point, l'essai et la mise en place de pseudo-tuteurs, généralement les tutoriels formés de problèmes composés par des enseignants. Le système permet de simplifier le processus d'élaboration tutorielle pour permettre à des utilisateurs enseignants ayant peu ou pas d'expérience en ITS, d'élaborer du contenu de problèmes et d'enseigner des stratégies (par ex. le format de problèmes comprenant des commentaires d'aide, des messages et le séquençage de problèmes associés). Le système comprend une interface basée sur le web comme moyen pour élaborer et stocker ces tutoriels. Une composante de signalisation est basée sur le web et signale en direct aux enseignants par l'intermédiaire d'une base de données, la manière dont procèdent leurs étudiants. L'invention fait intervenir l'analyse automatique et la signalisation de tutoriels expérimentaux mis au point par des enseignants.
