Dr. Gilbert's research statement: My research involves the development of usable, intelligent and/or multimedia based software solutions to problems in education and business. Specifically, I am interested in Intelligent Tutoring Systems via the Web. Part of my research involves the use of multimedia within these systems and how multimedia enhances the learning experience. These systems involve the use of intelligent, adaptable technologies that enhance the learning experience through personalization. Each system employs the use of a knowledge base that is used in decision making. On the human-computer interaction side of my research, I am interested in the development of interface usability models in conjunction with the software engineering process. The goal of this research is to develop usability methods that are cost effective and provide precise information regarding the usability of a software system.
