Abstract: In this paper, we present an adaptive tutoring system for students of multiple domains with a web-based interface for flexibility. The displayed media is adapted according to the student|s capability and aptitude by evaluating the student according to historical data and quizzes. The media is divided into dynamic frames and the content of each frame is displayed adaptively. A weighted approach is used to evaluate the student|s capability, and frames are generated based on a beta distribution. The initial evaluation of the system based on a paper simulation showed encouraging results.

Keywords: intelligent tutoring systems; adaptive hypermedia; e-learning; electronic learning; weighted attributes; online learning; adaptive tutoring; student evaluation; student capability; web interface.
