Research Interests

I am the leader of ICTG (Intelligent Computer Tutoring Group) (see also old Web page).

  • Three of our ITSs are available on the Addison-Wesley's DatabasePlace.
  • The Web version of SQL-Tutor, an Intelligent Tutoring System for SQL, is available.
  • The Web version of EER-Tutor (previously known as KERMIT),an Intelligent Tutoring System for conceptual database design using the EER model, is available.
  • The Web version of NORMIT, an Intelligent Tutoring System for data normalization, is available.
  • CV.
  • My earlier work on INSTRUCT, Object-Oriented GIS and Machine Learning is also available.
