Intelligent Frameworks for Instructional Design
Many researchers are attempting to develop automated instructional development systems to guide subject matter experts through the lengthy and difficult process of courseware development. Because the targeted users often lack instructional design expertise, a great deal of emphasis has been placed on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to incorporate instructional design knowledge in these automated systems. This paper presents a taxonomy describing various uses of AI techniques in automated instructional development systems. In addition, two specific systems being developed at the Air Force Armstrong Laboratory (AIDA and GAIDA) are reviewed. The initial formative evaluation of GAIDA is also reported. Some remarks about prospects for the future use of AI in automated instructional development systems conclude the paper. (18 references) (Author/BBM)
