The\ud software, implemented in PROLOG, empowers students\ud to construct their own learning environment and\ud is able to provide tailored forms of feedback to different\ud types of learner. We describe the development and\ud evaluation of the software, and we present details of\ud the analysis of the results of our investigation into the\ud effectiveness of the software as a teaching and learning\ud tool.
