A Historical Perspective on Authoring and ITS: Reviewing Some Lessons Learned (bibtex)
by Nye, Benjamin D. and Hu, Xiangen
Abstract:
This section discusses the practices and lessons learned from authoring tools that have been applied and revised through repeated use by researchers, content authors, and/or instructors. All of the tools noted in this section represent relatively mature applications that can be used to build and configure educationally-effective content. Each tool has been tailored to address both the tutoring content and the expected authors who will be using the tool. As such, even tools which support similar tutoring strategies may use very different interfaces to represent equivalent domain knowledge. In some cases, authoring tools even represent offshoots where different authoring goals led to divergent evolution of both the authoring tools and the intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) from a common lineage. Understanding how these systems adapted their tools to their particular authoring challenges gives concrete examples of the tradeoffs involved for different types of authoring. By reviewing the successes and challenges of the past, these chapters provide lessons learned for the development of future systems.
