Abstract

In research on intelligent tutoring systems, the advantage of separating domain knowledge from tutoring knowledge has been proven years ago. However, many scientific disciplines, and in particular all engineering domains, involve not only theoretical knowledge, but also practical one, i.e. problem solving, which consists of practical instantiations of the taught domain theory. In this context, our communication deals with knowledge modelling issues in engineering domains. Firstly, we present a new trichotomic division of the ITS knowledge: domain, problem- solving, and tutoring knowledge. Next, we present a typology of operating modes that can be supported by such a system. Finally, we describe the relationships between these
