What is AutoTutor?
AutoTutor is a unique and accessible tutoring resource that simulates a learning environment with a tutor (Cristina) and a peer (Jordan). In this environment, Cristina and Jordan are avatars with artificial intelligence that (1) engage a learner in conversation to facilitate the learning process and (2) adapt to the learner's performance.
With this structure, AutoTutor offers learners 30 lessons covering
- Word and sentence meanings.
- Stories and informational texts
- Digital media.
AutoTutor lets teachers watch students' progress, a roster, and have access to a messaging system.
