An Authoring System for Intelligent Procedural-Skill Tutors
May/June 1998 (vol. 13 no. 3)
pp. 61-69

Successful intelligent tutoring systems provide powerful learning environments but have been hard to transfer to other instructional domains. Conventional authoring systems for tutors, on the other hand, can build a wide range of tutors, but generally do little to tailor instruction toward the student.

The authors describe Mebuilder and Metutor, tools for constructing intelligent simulation-based tutors for procedural skills. Mebuilder uses object-oriented methods and automatic planning to prototype tutors quickly, and Metutor is the run-time environment for its tutors. These tools use planning methods, consistency enforcement, objects, and structured menus to make tutor development easier than with conventional authoring software.
