In this paper, we describe an item of "intelligent"\ud educational software that is intended to help students\ud taking university computer science courses to understand\ud the fundamentals of transaction scheduling. The\ud software, implemented in PROLOG, empowers students\ud to construct their own learning environment and\ud is able to provide tailored forms of feedback to different\ud types of learner. We describe the development and\ud evaluation of the software, and we present details of\ud the analysis of the results of our investigation into the\ud effectiveness of the software as a teaching and learning\ud tool. Our results suggest that our learning tool\ud provides students with a different and valuable type of\ud learning experience, which traditional methods do not\ud provide.
