This paper discusses how teachers may not always be available for supporting students, especially if students live in areas which are relatively inaccessible or too time consuming for teachers to reach. An alternative is intelligent tutoring systems (ITS) offering learners course support. However, it is evident that learners with special educational needs (SEN) such as dyslexia, may not have the cognitive facility to progress at levels equivalent to their peers and so may require support in strategies in which they could grasp concepts. One way of helping students to learn would be to harness strategies of teaching in ITS. It is suggested that bringing students together with ITS using mnemonic strategies may be a way of helping students achieve. The paper discusses the benefits of using mnemonic strategies by dyslexic learners and ways in which mnemonics could be harnessed in ITS.
