EDCI 591 Artificial Intelligence and Education (Now EDCI 667)

A laboratory based survey of research in the application of computer technology to educational problems. The course will survey the literature of the field and explore available computer-based education systems through student selected projects.
The standard strategy for frontier research in educational technology has been to develop facilities on expensive, sophisticated computers for anticipated use in educational settings when declining prices make more powerful machines more generally available. The field is now ripe for reporting and exhibiting work based on the technology of the early and mid-1980s. For the last five years, state of the art work in tutoring systems and learning environments has been taking place on Lisp machine systems. There is now a significant body of work reported in the literature and on the verge of publication which permits today the previewing of the kinds of systems that will be available for educational and training applications in the immdediate future.
