THE VIRTUAL TUTOR - Development of a Virtual Tutor within a Simulated Working Environment

Peter C. Pel, Rob M. M. Kommeren

Abstract

A simulation engine will be presented through which interactive virtual vocational environments were realized. In this simulation students could act as employees in a simulated company and as such gain experience and skills for their future profession. The simulations that are based on this simulation engine are simulations of practical situations that are being used in the secondary vocational education in the department of economics in the Netherlands. For the past six years this system has been totally redesigned and adapted to meet the requirements of the educational field. Now, thousands of users will be able to use this new simulation environment through the internet. At this moment an intelligent tutoring system is developed and will be tested. The simulation environment becomes now a full adaptive learning environment. During the workshop a demonstration will be given, showing the different possibilities of the system. Also the problems of filling the rules, decisions and content of the intelligent tutoring system will be discussed.
