Dr. B.P.Woolf

 

B P WoolfBeverly Park Woolf PhD, is a Research Professor in the Computer Science Department of the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She is the Director of the Center for Knowledge Communication. Many of the three-dimensional graphics and multimedia classes at the University of Massachusetts owe their beginning to Dr. Woolf's efforts to offer students the opportunity to expand both intellectual and practical skills.

Dr. Woolf's research focuses on building systems to effectively train, explainandadvise users. Extended multimedia capabilities are integrated with knowledgeabout the user,  domain and dialogue to produce real-time performance support and on-demand advisory and tutoring systems. The tutoring systems use intelligent interfaces, inferencing mechanisms, cognitive models and modifiable software to improve a computer's communicative abilities. These systems have been tested with learners, trainers and other client bases, deployed in education and industry, and demonstratedinmore than 50 American industrial, military and academic sites and 15 foreign countries.
