Abstract : Report developed under SBIR contract. Intelligent tutoring systems (lTSs) have shown great promise in a variety of training domains and can achieve many of the same benefits as one-on-one instruction, in a cost-effective manner. Our Phase I ITS authoring tool prototype demonstrated an innovative approach to Internet ITS development using Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) paradigm which largely circumvents the difficult and time-consuming process of knowledge elicitation. The case-based approach to knowledge gathering was shown to be highly intuitive, and authoring of the training course was greatly simplified, requiring no special computer training. Phase I also demonstrated critical Internet communication capabilities to allow the lTSs to be delivered, instruct, cooperate and send back updated student models, over the Internet. The authoring tool prototype was used to develop and demonstrate a prototype AWACS ITS.
