|Title||A database transaction scheduling tool in Prolog|
|Authors||Barker, S. and Douglas, P.|
In this paper, we describe an item of "intelligent" educational software that is intended to help students taking university computer science courses to understand the fundamentals of transaction scheduling. The software, implemented in PROLOG, empowers students to construct their own learning environment and is able to provide tailored forms of feedback to different types of learner. We describe the development and evaluation of the software, and we present details of the analysis of the results of our investigation into the effectiveness of the software as a teaching and learning tool. Our results suggest that our learning tool provides students with a different and valuable type of learning experience, which traditional methods do not provide.
