Intelligent Virtual Reality Tutoring Systems as a New Generation of Simulators: Requirements and Opportunities
This article explores the features and requirements of intelligent virtual reality tutoring systems – an innovative type of educational software. It also explores the applicability of these systems as educational simulators and classifies them with the help of existing typologies. The authors present a detailed discussion of immersive virtual learning environments, the penetration of artificial intelligence into this domain, and the effects of this penetration. The paper seems to be the first publication to survey intelligent virtual reality tutoring systems (IVRTSs). The results are our own IVRTS that can act as an educational simulator for kinematics as well as a set of recommendations on IVRTS design and implementation.
