In this course you will study advanced software technologies for learning, such as serious games in which you have to develop a sustainable city, simulations such as a virtual company that you have to run, competing against several other virtual companies, intelligent tutoring systems for learning mathematics, physics, or logic, etc. In particular, you will study the underlying intelligence necessary to determine what a student has learned, what a student should do next, give feedback to a student, etc.
The background necessary to solve some of the problems is very diverse: knowledge of data mining techniques, parsing and rewriting, artificial intelligence, etc. is all useful. I will try to adapt the projects to the background of the students, and try to use available knowledge as much as possible.
