DescriptionEconomic accountability concerns for wildfire prevention planning have led to the development of an ignition management approach to fire problems. The Fire Loss Prevention Planning Process (FLPPP) systematizes fire problem analyses and concomitantly establishes a means for evaluating prescribed prevention programs. However, new users of the FLPPP have experienced difficulty with both understanding and implementation. Consequently, an on-line tutorial is being developed for delivery of the rationale and methods of the FLPPP. This format takes the form of a knowledge-based intelligent tutoring system. The flexible design of the system permits several types of knowledge to be easily included. Mixed initiative interaction between user-student and system affords the student sub-- stantial control in exploring areas for which he or she may require a tutor. A close look at tutoring systems is recommended as an alternative to hard-copy documents for teaching individuals in an unfamiliar domain.
