Abstract

Many areas of study are neither well-suited to CAL systems based on traditional programmed learning methods nor can be modelled using the methods of artificial intelligence. At York we are developing authoring and presentation software for use in just such areas of higher education. The system supports individual study of materials in conjunction with conventional undergraduate teaching methods. Development of the system has been explicitly based on principles taken from cognitive psychology and from studies of human-computer interaction. In this paper we outline our approach and show how the proposed psychological principles have motivated the design of the system and of the courseware.
