The objective of INTUITEL is to enhance state-of-the-art e-learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMS) with features that so far have been provided only by human tutors. An INTUITEL-enabled system constitutes an integrated learning environment that configures itself in response to any learner, monitors his/her progress and behaviour, combines these data with pedagogical and methodological knowledge and then by automated reasoning deduces optimal guidance and feedback. The deductive process may include the current learner performance, the daily learning attitude and emotional setting of the learner, personal aspects like gender, culture and age as well as environmental aspects like available communication bandwidth, ambient noise level, screen size and type of access device. INTUITEL therefore will be a step towards a global learning cloud, where personalized technology-enhanced learning is available for any person at any place, with any access device and under any external condition, including mobile learning scenarios. In INTUITEL, learning goals will be defined according to the desired competency, which will be mapped to the available content. At the same time, high flexibility to choose a learning pathway is maintained by offering system driven and learner directed navigation tools, thereby increasing the empowerment of teachers and learners and fostering the acquisition of methodological knowledge. By interpreting the learner's responses INTUITEL will automatically determine his/her position in a cognitive model for the particular learning content. The INTUITEL-enabled LMS then plays the role of a pedagogically skilled teacher, transparently guiding the learner towards the required competencies. Particular emphasis will be put on a widespread dissemination of INTUITEL results across the e-learning industry as well as in schools, universities and to other educational key players in collaboration with a major e-learning conference.
