Project description

Office of Naval Research grant, N00014-15-1-2789 „Adaptive Courseware based on Natural Language Processing (AC & NL Tutor)“, $750.000,00, 2015 - 2019

Office of Naval Research grant, N00014-20-1-2066 „Enhancing Adaptive Courseware based on Natural Language Processing“, $1.000.000,00, 2020 - 2024

Our research focuses on improvements in courseware adaptivity and natural language communication in intelligent tutoring systems. The project outcomes include the development of an enriched and improved version of an almost fully automated intelligent tutoring system, which will be able to tutor any declarative domain knowledge and to communicate in natural language. The new intelligent tutoring system will incorporate a hybrid design, allowing users to learn in an environment that is adaptive to their needs and knowledge. Such an intervention is needed because learners vary widely in their background knowledge and learning styles. Hence, the successful intelligent tutoring system will need to adapt and respond to the learners’ skills, knowledge, goals, motivation, and interests. To achieve this objective, we will build upon and adapt the existing AC&NL Tutor intelligent tutoring system.
