The transfusion medicine tutor: a case study in the design of an intelligent tutoring system Conference Paper uri icon


  • © 1992 IEEE. Empirical studies of medical technology students indicate that there is a considerable need for additional skill development in performing tasks such as antibody identification. While this need is currently met by on-the-job training after employment, computer-based tutoring systems offer an alternative or supplemental problem-based learning environment that could be more cost effective. The Transfusion Medicine Tutor (TMT) explores the use of model of expert problem-solving to direct the application of a variety of teaching strategies in such an environment.
