Description & Coverage
Description:

In recent years, we have observed that many educational systems, especially intelligent tutoring systems, are being implemented according to an agent paradigm. Therefore, researchers in education believe that the educational computing environments would be more pedagogically effective if they had mechanisms to show and recognize the student's emotions.

Agent-based Tutoring Systems by Cognitive and Affective Modeling intends to present a modern view of intelligent tutoring, focusing mainly on the conception of these systems according to a multi-agent approach and on the affective and cognitive modeling of the student in this kind of educational environment. Providing researchers, academians, educators, and practitioners with a critical mass of research on the theory, practice, development, and implementation of tools for knowledge representation and agent-based architectures, this Premier Reference Source is a must-have addition to every library collection.

Reviews and Testimonials

This book presents a modern view of ITS, focusing mainly on the conception of these systems according to a multiagent approach, and on the affective and cognitive modeling of the student also based on agent's technologies.

This is heavily illustrated, and includes screen shots for popular software, and the references and resources are comprehensive. Advances are coming quickly, but this should prove to be helpful in planning technical or long distance pedagogy long after the hardware and software is replaced by the latest and greatest.
