The educational technology landscape continually evolves, and e-tutoring systems are pivotal in modern pedagogy. Traditional e-tutoring methods often struggle with adaptability and user-friendliness across various devices and platforms. To address these challenges, my research introduces a novel approach that leverages Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) principles, enhancing scalability and flexibility. The SOA configuration streamlines communication between system components, optimizing question delivery and response evaluation. Additionally, the research pioneers adaptive interfaces that intelligently engage users based on their device configurations and preferences, offering facial, vocal, or textual interactions. These interfaces ensure a consistent and tailored learning experience across PCs, laptops, and mobile devices. The study also considers critical success factors like User-Friendly Design and Technical Competence. This research presents a comprehensive solution to enhance e-tutoring systems for modern, adaptive, and engaging learning environments.
