    Intelligent tutoring system, ITS is a system that provides individualized tutoring or instruction. The intelligent systems, agents or tutoring systems act as virtual tutors and learning companions that help learners in learning. The notion of intelligent machines for teaching purposes can be traced back to 1926 when Sidney L. Pressey built a machine with multiple choice questions and answers. This machine delivered questions and provided immediate feedback to the user. With rapid technology changes, the Malaysian educational system is challenged with providing increased educational opportunities to every student. Many educational institutions are answering this challenge by developing distance teaching programs. The development of this project, An Intelligent Tutoring System Using Natural Language Dialogues, is one of many attempts to use technology in modem teachings to create a more effective learning and teaching environment. Artificial Intelligence is applied here in this system to enhance its capabilities and at the same time to make the system smarter in interacting with the user of this system. The main objective in developing this system is to produce a smart and intelligent system which could help students enhance their academic performance. This system is also developed to provide a self control learning environment where users can progress at their own rates and own capabilities. The development of this project focusses on the secondary school students and teachers. All the academic information will be based on the Malaysian education system or the Kurrikulum Bersepadu Sekolah Menengah (KBSM) system for chemistry. Among the features of this system are :-Login/ Access Module, Latest notes on form five chemistry subject, exercise/tutorials, natural language dialogue box and an interactive user interface. This project, is a dialogue based natural language application that uses the keyboard to interact with the system which will generate answers to each query by the user of the system. This system will be developed usin Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 with other available softwares.
