Low literacy scenario in India and other developing nation demands an alternative learning environment to deal with the problem. Lack of trained teachers, high dropout rates are some of the major problems that need to be addressed. Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS) or ITS Authoring tools (ITSAT) can be thought of as a possible solution to these problems. In this paper we present Shikshak, an ITSAT developed by us and discuss its deployment in the district of Paschim Medinipur, West Bengal along with its sample effect on primary education.
