Abstract

ECSAIWeb is a variant of ECSAI, an environment for designing intelligent tutoring systems. The tutoring knowledge contained in a tutor agent designed to run in a non-networked environment is reused and updated for the World Wide Web. We concentrate on a flexible architecture that allows teachers or authors to modify and add their knowledge in the domain. We apply adaptive techniques: adaptive presentations and adaptive navigation to present the domain knowledge to learners.
