Universities Moving Closer to Intelligent Learning Systems
This discussion paper explores how universities are using artificial intelligent to meet complex contemporary
educational challenges. Following a characterization of the field, recent contextual developments in artificial intelligence is
examined, specific to innovations that include automated essay grading, adaptive and personalized learning, digital
courseware, virtual tutoring, and learning analytics. Evidence-based examples are identified to demonstrate real-world
applications and highlight implications for future development. It is concluded that the development trajectories across both
fields could be better served with improved convergence in the developmental cycle.
