Abstract

In this paper, we describe an "intelligent" tool for helping to teach the principles of database design. The software that we present uses PROLOG to implement a teaching tool with which students can explore the concepts of dependency theory, and the normalization process. Students are able to construct their own learning environment and can develop their understanding of the material at a pace that is controlled by the individual student.
