Abstract

In this chapter, we will explore the potential for employing artificial intelligence and adaptive methods into online learning applications. The existing and newly developing technologies for representing knowledge will be explored and the pedagogic implications for online learning discussed, including examining the roles of intelligent tutoring systems, decision support systems and pedagogic agents. In the wider context, the role of search engines, browsers and virtual learning environments will also be discussed in the context of intelligent systems, and the problems in implementing intelligent web based learning systems in mainstream educational practice.
