Education & Training

Students learn concepts and skills more quickly when they receive one-on-one instruction. Stottler Henke develops intelligent tutoring systems that provide the benefits of one-on-one training -- automatically and cost-effectively. These systems encode the subject matter and teaching expertise of experienced instructors, using artificial intelligence (AI) software technologies and cognitive psychology models.   We have developed dozens of systems that provide practice-based learning for K-12 education, corporate training and professional development, and military training.
