From the Paper:

"Despite the very positive perceptions of what learning strategies could be created and customized to the students' unmet needs, the typical classroom is lacking in progress. The typical classroom of today has been, in the best of cases, integrated with computer systems on a network that allow for file and data sharing in class from the instructor. Yet the progression of software and specifically applications delivered over the World Wide Web for use in tailoring learning strategies for students in more complex subjects is still embryonic in its growth. There is a dearth of materials today for assisting students in learning the fundamentals of more complex subjects as a result."
