Expert Systems in Education.
Hartschuh, Wayne
This paper argues that the concepts and techniques used in the development of expert systems should be expanded and applied to the field of education, particularly in the area of intelligent tutoring systems. It is noted that expert systems are a well known area of artificial intelligence and have been proven effective in well-defined topic areas. Furthermore, it is suggested that expert systems could have an impact on: (1) educational planning and decision making, particularly the use of computers to manage student records, student counselling, and special education programs; (2) teacher training and education, specifically, identifying training needs and using computer assisted instruction to teach information and skills; and (3) intelligent tutoring systems that guide students through instruction according to their individual strengths and weaknesses. It is concluded that while expert systems in education have great potential, they remain unestablished as a useful technology due to a lack of research and documentation. (9 references) (DB)
