The Development of CAI: An Expert System in Education.
Kaiser, Javaid
A brief overview of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) is provided. The history and theoretical framework of CAI and typical developmental stages involved in the implementation of a CAI system are outlined. The way CAI determines background knowledge of a student, presents information necessary to learn new concepts, sets its pace according to student needs, reinforces previous learning, and evaluates student performance qualifies it as an expert system. Developmental stages covered include: (1) conceptualization (development of project rationale); (2) design (development of behavioral objectives, choice of a learning theory, selection of content and instructional models, development of means of sequencing instruction and presenting materials, student support requirements, measurement of student performance, selection of computer language/program, development of means of selecting an "authoring system," and validation of design); and (3) implementation (coding in suitable author language, testing of the system to determine whether it meets product specifications, determination of overall instructional value of the CAI system, and marketing). Advantages and unresolved issues related to CAI are discussed. (TJH)
