Despite the recent strong interest in computer-aided learning, very few high quality programs are available. This article describes an authoring system that was designed to help faculty at medical schools develop a library of effective computer-based lessons. Features of the system include ease of authoring and the ability to incorporate natural language input by the learner, model complex situations, keep track of 100 performance variables and employ interactive laser video disk technology. The authors describe the experience that has been gained in the development and implementation of computer-aided learning at a medical school, and reflect on its future applications and value.
