WEAR is a Web-based authoring tool for the construction of Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs) in Algebra-related domains, such as physics, economics, chemistry, etc. In WEAR's authoring environment instructors are able to construct problems and tests and also build adaptive electronic textbooks. In return, WEAR generates a learning environment in which(More)
The role of instructors as users/authors of ITS authoring tools is very important for the effectiveness of the produced ITSs. In order for authoring tools to benefit the most from the involvement of instructors, they should provide individualised feedback to them throughout the ITS's life cycle. In most cases the addition of an instructor modelling(More)
Authoring tools for Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs) are meant to provide environments where instructors may author their own ITSs in varying domains. In this way, painful constructions of ITSs, which are not reusable, may be avoided. However, the construction of an authoring tool is associated with many problems, such as the generality of the techniques(More)
This paper describes the development of a web-based authoring tool for Intelligent Tutoring Systems and focuses on its instructor modelling capabilities. The tool is called WEAR and aims to be useful to teachers and students of domains that make use of algebraic equations. Specifically, the tool provides assistance to human teachers while they are(More)
WEAR is a Web-based authoring tool for Intelligent Tutoring Systems in Algebra related domains. Apart from modelling the student which is a common practice in almost all ITSs and ITS authoring tools, WEAR deals also with modelling the other class of its users: the instructors. Student and instructor models in WEAR interact with each other by exchanging(More)
