Abstract

AutoTutor is a conversational tutoring environment applicable to any content domain. AutoTutor simulates the dialog patterns and pedagogical strategies of human tutors in a conversational interface that supports mixed-initiative
dialog. As the student and AutoTutor progress through the tutoring session, they engage in a conversation to collaboratively improve the quality of the student's contributions.
