Abstract

A Tutorial System (ATS) was developed by members of the Anatomy Department of Cornell University Medical College (CUMC). The system was designed to enable teachers to converse with students through a natural language computer-mediated dialogue (tutorial). ATS consists of two major parts, an author-interrogation program (used in preparing tutorials) and a tutorial supervisory program (used during the student—teacher dialogue). ATS, in turn, is based on the computer language APL.
