Abstract

Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) have proven their worth in multiple ways and in multiple domains in Education. In this article the application of an Intelligent Tutoring System to an Engineering Course is introduced. The paper also introduces an explanation of how the course adapts to the students as well as to the teachers. User adaptation is provided by means of the so called pedagogical strategies, which among others specify how to proceed in showing the contents of the matter for a better assimilation of the knowledge by the student. Thus, in this paper the adaptation mechanisms implemented in the ITS, which permit that the students learn better and the professors teach better, are explained in extensive.
