Abstract

In recent years, there is a growing need for computer technology to be used in a real school environment and/or higher education classrooms. However. educational software has often been criticized as it has not been specifically designed to meet the needs of real classrooms. In this study. we have tried to develop the system, what we have called its "ZOSMAT" that will respond almost every needs of a real classroom. ZOSMAT can be used for the purpose of either individual learning or real classroom environment with the guidance of a human tutor during a formal education process. This characteristic of ZOSMAT distinguishes itself from other intelligent tutoring systems. ZOSMAT follows a student in each stage of the learning process and guides him/her about what he/she will need to do. ZOSMAT with a web-based feature presents art equal opportunity of education for both the student in the classroom and the student in the far end of the world. This system is a student-center ed one and the progress in student's learning process depends on his/her effort. (c) 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
