The progress of computer science, in association with the progress of computer hardware, is making computers a more accessible and important tool in assisting individuals in processing and computing information. This fact enhances the use of computers for educational and teaching purposes. That is, the current sophisticated potential of computers can be used to provide a means to acquire concepts and to develop reasoning and problem-solving skills. Computer-aided learning (CAL) and computer-aided instruction (CAI) have become established fields in computer science; they utilize the computer as a tool for learning and presenting instruction that is individualized, interactive, and guided.
