Next generation web learning management systems will deliver courses built from small re-usable learning objects and use systems to tailor curricula so that the learning needs of each individual student can be met in an automated and cost effective way. Web based intelligent tutoring systems, aimed at compensating for the absence of a real world tutor have to date mostly concentrated on providing assistance in a particular subject domain and not focussed on the problem of utilising content represented as learning objects across multi subject domains. This paper describes the creation of a non-dictatorial tutoring system that employs a ‘learning navigator’ to help trainees visualise the best path through assignable units extracted from a learning repository. The system is based on an extension of the SCORM standard and stores content as sharable content objects (SCOs)
