CyberTutor is an interactive web-based program that dramatically improves the amount learned per unit time that students spend solving problems. It functions as a personal tutor for the student, offering help with the problems when requested or in response to incorrect answers. CyberTutor collects extensive feedback which is processed to inform the teacher about current performance and lack of foundational skills of each student, show troublesome problems and areas for the class, and inform the problem author about imperfections in the problems. CyberTutor contains problems involving Newtonian Mechanics at the freshman college level and at high school AP level, many of which involve conceptual issues as well as quantitative ones. Research shows that students gain twice as much conceptual knowledge per unit time with CyberTutor compared with written homework.
