Evaluation of an Intelligent Tutoring System Shell for Industrial and Office Training


This project evaluated an ITS (Intelligent Tutoring System) shell on the basis of data gathered from commercial, scholastic and industrial field trials. The field trials were on office automation procedures, scholastic skills and maintenance procedures. This project aimed to identify how to use intelligent tutoring systems to cut training costs and increase training effectiveness. A new prototype (DOMINIE) was designed and implemented.

The system shell and the trainer interface were respecified from an analysis of the results of the first field trials. Design modifications were made with regard to the teacher's help in choosing tutorial material and in refining the tutorial control loopand tutorial strategies. Simple applications demonstrations were given of their implementation.
A second field trials phase evaluated the implementation of the enhanced prototype. The final building loop iteration, covering field trials, redesign and implementation, was completed.
An enhanced prototype version of the trainer interface was successfully demonstrated.
This project has a strong commercial potential, as the rapidly growing shortage of advanced tools to provide training in new disciplines is well known.
The use of DOMINIE within other divisions of Alcatel is planned, thereby providing continuing feedback to the consortium.
DATAMAT has planned to add to any package software application they will provide in the future a tutorial package based on DOMINIE. The Open University will develop a spreadsheet tutorial based on DOMINIE for its students and will carry on cognitive research in this area.
