Learner modeling forms the foundations for intelligent tutoring systems that provide adaptive and active learning guidance for learning and education quality enhancement. The aim of this study was to develop learner modeling technologies to form the foundation of intelligent tutoring systems. Specific research tasks include learner modeling building techniques, diverse learner state diagnosis methods and educational data mining.
