The network-based ICAI integrate tutoring system
The “Integrate ware” based on the advanced technologies of the computer science and the idea of the Chinese classical “I ching” is proposed as the idea of the designing courseware that is to adapt the essential elements to all changes in classrooms. The tool of courseware development guided by the ideas of the “Integrate ware” makes teachers change the mode of courseware development from the traditional sequential mode to the new three-dimension mode. The courseware designed by using the new mode can be changed more flexibly and dynamically. “The Network-Based ICAI Integrate Tutoring System” has been developed based on the “Integrate ware”. This system has three functions: • provides teachers dynamic courseware designing tools ; • provides an interaction to teachers through the LAN (Local Area Network)teaching; • allows students learn and review at their own pace outside class hours. This paper discusses the main characteristics of the tool of courseware development based on the “Integrate ware” as well as describes the general structure of the tutoring system and the functions of the sub-systems of “The Classroom on LAN” and “Intelligence Student Self-Learning and Self-Test”.
