A Survey on Recent Patents Regarding Intelligent Educational Systems

Author(s): Ioannis Hatzilygeroudis and Jim Prentzas
Pages 214-222 (9)
Computer-based educational systems are becoming increasingly important in all levels and types of education. Intelligent Educational Systems (IESs) are computer-based educational systems encompassing Artificial Intelligence schemes to increase the effectiveness of the learning process. In this paper, we survey patents regarding IESs. As IESs we consider either Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs) or Adaptive Educational Hypermedia Systems (AEHSs) incorporating intelligent techniques. We first present indicative functions implemented in the three basic components of an IES: the domain knowledge, the user (or student) modeling unit and the pedagogical module. Afterwards, we focus on representative patents concerning IESs and present the corresponding work. At the end, we outline current and future developments regarding IESs.
