Abstract: Recently, artificial intelligence (AI) concepts, theories and approaches receive increasing attention within the educational technology community. Moreover,the convergence of artificial intelligence,data science , educational technology and web science is enabling the creation of a new generation of web-based intelligent e-learning and tutoring systems. The web based of such systems can enhance the online education/ learning/training processes.In this paper we focus our discussion around the AI methodologies and techniques for developing the intelligent e-Learning and tutoring systems. In addition, the paper presents some examples of the developed systems by the author and his colleagues at Artificial intelligence and Knowledge Engineering Research Labs,Ain Shams University,Cairo,Egypt.
