A Suggested E-Tutor Model as Dynamic Intelligent Tutoring System For Mathematics in Egyptian Language Schools

Safaa S. Mahmoud
Abstract—Current research aimed to construct an e-tutor according to Dynamic Math Intelligent Tutoring System (MD_ITS) to help mathematics teachers to develop their e-courses, and their Knowledge Base  according to e-tutor algorithm and instructional design. A sample of teachers from Taha Hussein Language school, Yarmouk School, Mohammad Najibullah experimental language schools were chosen, The sample is divided into two equal groups: the first experimental group was taught Math Fractions units to fourth grade students of primary schools through the proposed e-tutor software designed in accordance with the intelligent tutoring system (MD_ITS), and the other experimental group was taught by the traditional software prepared by the Ministry of Education. Then the test measurements of Math teachers attitudes towards e-courses depended on ITS were applied. The proposed intelligent (MD_ITS) design, depended on some instructional models.  Researcher adopted the model of the "Fogan Tai, 1994" including phases of: analysis phase, instructional design phase, Interaction design phase, production phase. Also addressed the study of the (Rezzaq, 2003) to design a system, based on smart dialogue, to improve the level of student performance as a tool to provide content.

The suggested E-tutor MD-ITS depends on the four sub-models:

1)  Expert Model, to extract knowledge and representation.

2)  Student Model, to determine the student's knowledge to provide intelligent problem of the child.

3)  Tutorial Model, to choose the appropriate lesson for the child, depending on the response model. ITS can offer the guidance, hints, help, and assistance.

4)  User Interface, The interaction between the user (both teacher and students) and the system.

The proposed E-Tutor MD_ITS activate the role of a teacher and involvement him in the development of lessons, questions, guidance, assistance generated for the responsibility towards the students, and created a kind of competition among teachers to try to access to the most basic formulas, which would simplify the subject and therefore it was to benefit from their experiences as experts in area of specialization, also encouraged teachers to enter data and information, which in turn directly to the dynamics of knowledge bases built by the researcher.

Index Terms—ITS, instructional Design, e-tutor, AI, intelligent software, MD_ITS (Math Dynamic Intelligent Tutoring System.
