Abstract

The goal of the Atlas project is to increase the opportunities for students to construct their own knowledge by conversing (in typed form) with a natural language-based ITS. In this paper we describe two components of Atlas-APE, the integrated planning and execution system at the heart of Atlas, and CARMEL, the natural language understanding component. These components have been designed as domain- independent rule-based software, with the goal of making them both extensible and reusable. We illustrate the use of CARMEL and APE by describing Atlas-Andes, a prototype ITS built with Atlas using the Andes physics tutor as the host.
