An intelligent tutoring system is computer software designed to simulate a human tutor’s behavior and guidance and can assist students by posing questions, parsing responses, and offering customized instruction and feedback. The "7 Things You Should Read About..." series from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) provides a concise set of resources on emerging learning technologies meant to provide a quick understanding on the topic. Topics are sourced from ELI’s “7 Things You Should Know About...” series, which also contains an issue and podcast on intelligent tutoring. You may find other ELI resources useful in addressing teaching, learning, and technology issues at your institution. To learn more, please visit the ELI publications page.
