Janis Grundspenkis


The development of intelligent tutoring systems is discussed from intelligent agent and knowledge management perspectives. A conceptual model in which both perspectives are integrated is proposed. The model consists from system’s layer based on agent paradigm and knowledge worker’s layer responsible for personal knowledge management of knowledge worker (teacher and/or student). The implemented prototype of intelligent knowledge assessment system is described.
