An Intelligent Tutoring System on the WWW Supporting Interactive Simulation Environment with a Multimedia Viewer Control Mechanism.
Nakabayashi, Kiyoshi; Maruyama, Mina; Koike, Yoshimasa; Fukuhara, Yoshimi; Nakamura, Yukihiro
This paper describes the features of the 1996 version of an intelligent tutoring system (ITS) called CALAT. The architecture of CALAT is an extension of conventional World Wide Web systems, consisting of an ITS kernel on the server side and a multimedia viewer on the client side. The viewer control system is designed to achieve both educationally effective multimedia presentation and quick system response time even over a low speed network. As an application of the viewer control mechanism, an interactive simulation environment is implemented. This environment lets the student interact with a simulated target system presented by the multimedia viewer under the control of a state transition machine (STM) running on the CALAT server. These new features make it possible to build an interactive ITS environment available over the network with powerful and effective data presentation capability. The paper highlights design and implementation of the viewer control mechanism and interactive simulation. Three figures present the viewer control mechanism, the pipeline data transfer, and an example of the interactive simulation. (Author/DLS)
