ICCAL, the International Conference on Computers andLearning, is a forum for the exchange of ideas andpresentation of developments in the theory andpractice ofcomputer uses in education, with a focus on post-secondaryeducation. ICCAL '92 was held at Acadia University inWolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada, June 17-20, 1992.This volume presents the proceedings of ICCAL '92, andfeatures 45 submitted and 6 invited papers. Topics addressedinclude hypermedia systems, multimedia learningenvironments, educational strategies, knowledge basedtutors, program visualization systems, intelligent tutoringsystems, mouse and touchscreen comparison, cooperativemultimedia, authoring systems, language learning, spellingremediation, teaching geometry, a tutoring assistant forarithmetic, a learning package for statistics,conversational pattern learning, adaptive navigationaltools, and many more.
