Abstract: Sub-Saharan Africa countries are facing unique challenges that handicap learners in these countries. In attempts to meet goals that will improve the economic well-being of their citizens, these countries are investing scarce resources in educational technologies for learning institutions. One such resource that Sub-Saharan Africa countries have not deeply invested in is the use of Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) as tools for basic and secondary education. This paper discusses the importance and advantages of these countries in investing in ITS for schools. This paper also addresses some of the challenges that Sub-Saharan Africa countries face in implementing these systems.
