Description

Though educational methods such as distance and e-learning have addressed our modern, knowledge-based society’s requirement for innovative approaches to performing educational activities, room for improvement still exists.

Artificial Intelligence Applications in Distance Education seeks to examine the efforts made to bridge the gap between student and educator with computer applications. Through an in-depth discussion of applications employed to overcome the problems encountered during educational processes, this premier reference collection aims to enhance teachers’ and students’ educational experiences and improve their knowledge of the literature and the latest developments in educational technologies.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Adaptive Learning Systems
  • Agent-Based Distributed Intelligent Tutoring
  • Blended Learning Education Programs
  • Educational Expert Systems
  • Educational Multi-Agent Systems
  • Global Knowledge Networking
  • Intelligent Learning Systems

Reviews and Testimonials

Computer scientists and electrical engineers introduce artificial intelligence-based distance education to overcome some of the problems that arise from the complexity of distance education. The topics include a proposed model for global knowledge networking utilizing digital libraries, designing a multi-agent system for improving the accounting of electronic learning, a web-based intelligent educational laboratory system for forecasting chaotic time series, resolving the paradox of overconfident students with intelligent methods, an agent-based distributed intelligent tutoring system using case-based reasoning, and an evolutionary approach to the automatic and dynamic modeling of students' learning styles.
