Intelligent tutors are well integrated into our virtual and real world. We interact with them in gaming where virtual guides help us learn how to play better (for example in Destiny and Modern Warfare). Research shows that one-on-one tutoring increases student learning outcomes. This was validated in our work using virtual tutors (designed as games and just custom released tests) to assist students who needed to fill in gaps in learning at the Graziadio School. This presentation demonstrates the game that was built, the design for the customized tests and the results from both. One thing is for sure - artificial intelligence is here to stay and will increasingly become a part of the learning landscape. I would love any questions, comments, or additional insights in this exciting and anxiety filled area that will be a part of educating the workforce of the future!

Intelligent Tutoring Systems is a topic I hope to expand on as an instructional designer. My anxiety level increases when I think about how to develop ITS. It's not just about gamifying content, but rather adapting the content to fit the learner. Challenge accepted!

You are amazing, Gloria Schramm! I'm sure whatever you do in this area will be not only a hit but advance educational outcomes for the lucky students who engage with your learning assets.
