Definitions of artificial intelligence in education are presented, with attention to these areas: (1) intelligent tutoring systems; (2) interactive learning environments; (3) virtual environments for education; (4) computer-mediated communication; (5) intelligent agents for education; (6) the World Wide Web and education; and (7) intelligent interfaces for learning support systems. Perspectives for the future of artificial intelligence in education are discussed.
