Abstract : These proceedings identify, discuss, and (where possible) clarify issues of knowledge representation in the design and implementation of Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs). Various architectures are discussed, including case-based reasoning and hypermedia. In addition, issues of interface design, student modeling, blackboard architectures, and ITS evaluation are dealt with in the presentations provide herein. Specific authors and topics are as follows: Burns and Parlett describe current theories of ITS design and argue for an increasingly integrated and complex approach to training system design; Regian describes an ITS for teaching high-performance tasks using voice synthesis; Fink discusses computational issues in intelligent interface design with particular emphasis on interfaces for intelligent discovery microworlds; Porter et al. focus on explanation generation in ITSs which use very large knowledge bases.
