Abstract: This paper proposes a method to couple the domain, student and pedagogical models in an Intelligent Tutoring System. The goal of the proposed method is to produce a personalised version of the domain model with respect to the student model, without burdening the teacher with the task of specifying how this personalisation is to be done. The pedagogical model is defined through Object Petri Net, whose transitions control the interaction decisions, according to conditions that refer to the student model and feedback. All student model management is automatically included in the pedagogical model by the authoring tool.

Keywords: intelligent tutoring systems; ontology; object Petri nets; user interaction; adaptive hypermedia systems; web-based education; e-learning; online learning; interaction modelling; personalisation; authoring tools.
