Abstract

The results presented in this paper focus on the study of two dimensions related to tutoring: proactive tutoring versus reactive, human tutoring versus system tutoring. A total of 228 university students took part in the study. The results obtained in two different experimentations lead us to consider the preponderance of human tutoring over system tutoring with an important handicap however being the cost, particularly in the case if proactive tutoring, that may require up to four times more effort than reactive tutoring. In this paper, we also consider other observations important to emphasize concerning proactive tutoring.
