<p>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. </p> <p>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. </p>
