This paper presents a solution for conceptually modelling the teaching domain knowledge for computer-assisted instructional systems. The model consists of a theoretical framework and a knowledge representation approach. This model might be adopted in order to build a well-defined conceptual structure for the domain knowledge of a CAI system. The paper also presents an authoring system which implements the features of the modelling methods. This approach can offer a better solution to the problem of knowledge structuring and organising for computer-assisted instructional systems.
