The capabilities of computers for intense interaction and cost effective storage of reference material suggest that computer aided instruction (CAI) may have substantial potential for training and information transfer. This paper reviews common approaches to developing and using CAI programs, including various commercial authoring systems and languages. Examples of CAI programs developed by the authors are discussed, involving programs used in civil engineering instruction and at the workplace. Some other possible applications are summarized and evaluated.
