Recent advances in artificial intelligence and the cognitive sciences have made it possible to develop successful intelligent computer-aided instructional systems for technical and scientific training. In addition, computer-aided design environments that support the rapid development of such computer-based instruction have also been recently developed. The project brought together a consulting team that included a successful instructor in business education, cognitive scientists, workers in teacher education, and the Instructional Design Environment (IDE) development team. This group, working at the Institute for Research on Learning, developed an IDE prototype for the development of computer-based training in business education.
