ABSTRACT This paper describes an artificial intelligence-based application for facilitating teacher learner interactions, and learner feedback and assessment in online engineering courses. The application reduces the amount of time a teacher has to spend answering questions, redirecting students to resources and assessing learning so that a larger number of students can be accommodated in an online course without forgoing interaction and feedback. The teacher still plays an important role in an online course, but the application helps the teacher to answer routine questions and provide necessary feedback. The application also gives more control to the learner to progress through the course in a self-paced manner thereby facilitating self-directed learning. KEYWORDS On-line course, learning assessment; distance learning, artificial intelligence

1. I NTRODUCTION Developments in information and knowledge-based technologies are providing the impetus for transforming the teaching-learning process. New forms of producing, storing and distributing or knowledge has allowed for an increase in performance, breaking up traditional barriers to learning.
