Development of Techniques to Perform Simulation-Adaptation in Perform a Simulation Training Environment Using Expert Systems Methods
The use of computers for instructional purposes is steadily increasing, along with an emphasis on developing systems which create environments tailored to human beings. Artificial Intelligence techniques have been incorporated into these systems with an aim at developing better methods of modeling of simulating knowledge and intelligent behavior. One type of these systems, Intelligent Simulation Training Systems (ISTS), utilize a simulation in the training process. This is an ideal environment for the instruction of skills which focus on the ability to understand the time and space relationships of objects. An intelligent tutor module of an ISTS must configure scenarios for the simulation which meet the objectives of the student's current lesson. This document describes research efforts aimed at designing and implementing methods in which a tutor module intelligently configures scenarios off-line and then dynamically adapts these scenarios on-line as required, within the simulation.
