Considering Individual Learning Styles while Working with Intelligent Tutor Systems
Business Informatics
(Bachelor’s programme)
Intellectual education is used as an auxiliary tool in decision-making, problem solving, knowledge acquisition.

However, it requires students to have certain skills and abilities, since the use of individual tutoring systems in training presupposes a certain level of independence.

The web-learning environment has become an integral part of the education process. The way in which it is used in the learning process, or in other words, the learning strategy, is an important issue that needs to be carefully considered, taking into account topics such as the pedagogical approach and the appropriate methods of evaluation.

To effectively use intellectual tutoring systems, students need to have two interrelated skills - critical thinking and the possibility of independent learning.

Critical thinking is an important and actual topic of modern education. Critical thinking is the ability to analyze facts, generate and organize ideas, defend opinions, make comparisons, draw conclusions, evaluate arguments and solve problems.

Another issue of interest to educators is self-study, which encourages autonomous learning and involves students in the learning plan, aimed at helping them learn. Independent students are "responsible owners and managers of their educational process." Independent students can develop their own training programs that meet their goals. Such training is common among adults.

Despite the fact that a large number of studies have focused on these two issues separately, it is rare to find research on both topics. Therefore, this study was aimed at studying the relationship between critical thinking and self-learning, as well as consideration of opportunities in web-learning, which become available to the holders of these skills.
