Abstract: This paper reports research concerning issues involved in adopting a computational dialectics approach to develop a computerised system for educational debate. In particular, we consider the construction and usability evaluation of a human computer debating system. The system has been fully implemented and an initial usability evaluation has been undertaken, from which the results are essentially favourable. It is anticipated that this work will contribute to the development of human-computer dialogue in general and of computer-based educational dialogue in particular
