Surviving and Thriving in the IPSI Suite Environment. An Active Learning Guide for Educators and Trainers.
This guide was developed to help users and trainers to use the expert system called IPSI Suite. The first section provides an introduction and overview to the IPSI Suite, an integrated software package that, at its basic level, facilitates the following processes: (1) course curriculum development, (2) lesson planning, and (3) student performance evaluation. Following the introduction, the guide contains 39 two-page modules organized in sections on these three topics. Each module shares a common format consisting of the following: a header identifying the software component, the module number and title, and the estimated time to complete it; a step-by-step guide through the module; illustrations; information and insights; actions to be taken before progressing to the next module; and further information. Ten appendixes provide modules on higher-level, more challenging uses of the software. (KC)
