Advanced Distributed Learning - Memphis Intelligent Tutoring Systems Center
MetaTutor Capabilities
MetaTutor is an interdisciplinary project involving the design, development, and evaluation of a web-based intelligent adaptive hypermedia system to (1) model key self-regulatory processes to foster students’ understanding of science and (2) to provide adaptive scaffolding during learning about complex science topics.
