This Master’s Thesis presents a computer-aided tutorial system built on the concepts of dynamic support and on-line intelligence. The system was originally aimed at providing an interactive teaching aid for a college level introductory course in Artificial Intelligence (AI). The resulting system can actually be used for many other courses of various disciplines and at different educational levels. This can be done by simply supplying this system with the teaching materials of the particular courses. The system is designed for easy use by both students and teachers. Students are guided by concise and friendly prompts along their journey through the message and question sessions. Teachers will find this system easy to tailor to his or her subject material and teaching style. The messages and questions are stored in individual files external to the program. These files are simple to create, easy to edit and can cover many different subjects.
