Ann: A Set Of Educational Neural Net Simulators, Siripong Malasri, Stanley P. Franklin

Journal of the Arkansas Academy of Science

ANN has been developed on MS-DOS computers primarily for educational uses. Currently, it consists of six simulation programs. ANN1 is a very simple neural net which shows how a network learns by adjusting its connection weights. ANN2 is a single processing element neural net, in which the user trains the network manually by adjusting the connection weights and the threshold value. ANN3 is a manually trained simple two layered network. It demonstrates the power of hidden neurons. ANN4is a Bidirectional Associative Memory network. ANN5 is a Perceptron that learns from examples. ANN6 is a network based on the backpropagation of ...


Educational Software Development Using Hypertext And Expert System Software Concepts, Siripong Malasri, Roger R. Easson Jan 1990

Educational Software Development Using Hypertext And Expert System Software Concepts, Siripong Malasri, Roger R. Easson

Journal of the Arkansas Academy of Science

This paper presents two computer software concepts: hypertext and expert systems; which are useful for educational software development. Good educational software enhances the learning process and offers opportunities for faculty to provide additional materials for independent studies, which would otherwise be impossible, due to the limited time and incredible growing rate of technological progress. The hypertext concept offers the students a non-linear learning style, while the expert system concept provides explanation facilities for students to probe the logic of the systems. Both approaches are extremely useful for educational software. With the proper tools, the courseware can be implemented easily and ...
