The aim of this workshop is to bring together members of the ITS community for an in-depth exploration of ARL’s effort to develop tools, methods, and standards for Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) as part of their Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) research project. GIFT is a modular, service-oriented architecture whose goal is to address authoring, instructional strategies, and analysis constraints currently limiting the use and reuse of ITS today. GIFT has three primary objectives: (1) provide an authoring capability to develop new ITS and their components (e.g., learner models, pedagogical models, user interfaces, sensor interfaces), and standards to support the reuse of existing ITS components and leverage external training environments (e.g., serious games - Sottilare and Gilbert, 2011); (2) provide an instructional manager that encompasses best tutoring principles, strategies, and tactics for use in computer-based tutoring systems (CBTS); and (3) an experimental testbed to analyze the effectiveness and impact of CBTS components, tools, and methods.
