Abstract Title: The utility and prospects of computers coaching students in physics
Abstract: People have tried to use computers to help students learn physics for almost as long as there have been computers. These efforts have ranged from Computer Assisted Instruction, in which a rigid program or curriculum is presented by a computer, to Intelligent Tutors, which can utilize student responses to provide a student with individualized and targeted practice. In this roundtable, we will discuss the prospects for computer coaches in the near future based on past performance and realistic extrapolation.
