Learning in an Introductory Expert Systems Course
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
Place of Publication
The first author, a graduate student in computer science, had just completed an introductory knowledge-based systems course taught by the other, a professor of computer science, when they read a recent IEEE Expert article title, 'Teaching an Introductory Course in Expert Systems' (p.59-63, Winter 1986). Because their respective experiences differed substantially from those of the authors of the above article, they describe such a course here as seen primarily through the eyes of the learner. The present authors provide two distinct perspectives. The first shares the student's background, motivations, and expectations, leading to a discussion of what he learned and did not learn during the course. The second (the professor's) comments on overall project and course results, including lessons learned by the professor.
