Abstract

In recent years, the amount of software developed to be used in the fields of computer-assisted teaching, e-learning, and distance education, and their quality levels have greatly varied. In order to meet the increasing demand for effective and suitable coursewares at an optimum level, the most convenient method is believed to be that these coursewares should be developed by teachers themselves, and a considerable number of quality studies focusing on these coursewares should be conducted to improve educational processes in general. At this point, the studies and projects benefitting from the advantages of artificial intelligence-based approaches are becoming frequently available in the related literature as an innovative trend. The current chapter deals with the design and development of an “expert system shell program” on the basis of certain specific goals and needs mentioned in the literature. The main objective of the study is to assist teachers in developing their own courseware by using this particular program. The shell program developed within the scope of this study was tested on a group of people that consists of teachers from different fields of teaching and education levels, and its effectiveness was evaluated through certain methods.
