Beverly Park Woolf is a research professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She holds two doctoral degrees, one in computer science and one in education. Her research focuses on building intelligent tutoring systems to effectively train, explain, and advise users. Extended multimedia capabilities are integrated with knowledge about 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. She is the author of Building Intelligent Interactive Tutors: Student-Centered Strategies for Revolutionizing e-Learning.
