This chapter provides information on how to design intelligent tutoring systems for distributed learning to cater to individual learner needs and styles. It argues that intelligent tutoring systems must use the expertise that tutors use in a one-to-one teaching situation to build intelligent tutoring systems for distributed learning. Also, the appropriate psychological and educational theories must be used to build the domain module, student model, and pedagogical module. The components of intelligent tutoring systems are described, and the author makes the case that to build effective intelligent tutoring systems, a multidisciplinary team should be involved. Finally, the author identifies trends that are influencing the development of intelligent tutoring systems and suggests areas for future research and development.
