There is much to savor, both for the seasoned practitioner and those sampling the field for the first time." -- William R. Murray, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist, Knowledge Systems Research, Boeing Phantom Works "The book has broad coverage of all the interdisciplinary aspects that the field draws upon. No one, except an expert intelligent tutoring builder like Beverly could have written this book. She uses as examples of intelligent tutoring system from others leading intelligent tutoring, as well as talking about systems her and her colleagues have built." - Neil T. Heffernan, Assistant Professor, Computer Science Dept, Fuller Labs "Woolf's Building Intelligent Interactive Tutors is a thorough, clear, logical description of the science, technology, methods, and rationale behind a very important, up-and-coming, educational technology: Intelligent Tutoring Systems. It will be very beneficial to developers and users (teachers and students) of ITSs and those who make instructional technology acquisition decisions. It's sure to become the standard, referenced ITS text." â Dick Stottler, President, Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.
