LAGUNTXO: A Rule-Based Intelligent Tutoring System Oriented to People with Intellectual Disabilities
In order to face the problems that people with disabilities find in their integration into working environments, one of the key issues is the implementation of solutions offered by new technologies by using what experts call “Support Technologies”. The development of Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) based on mobile platforms offers new perspectives for better integration of people with disabilities. The LAGUNTXO System aims to achieve the performance of human tutors, going a step beyond classical tutoring systems which perform organizational tasks. Due to the wide diversity related to people with disabilities, an intelligent structure that may achieve a convenient tutoring system configuration for each case has been incorporated. With an appropriate design of the structure and architecture of this task handler, it is very easy to operate by stakeholders. An automaton-based mechanism has been performed to technologically adapt the large amount of possibilities related to the interaction between people with disabilities, the task that is going to be made autonomously by these people, and the mobile system elements. In this paper, LAGUNTXO architecture, operational ways, and several use cases are presented.
