RoboTutor was developed by Dr. Jerry Debenham, who has a PhD in Educational Technology and has published numerous articles in the field. He has also won a national and several regional awards for innovative computer software.
Assisting Dr. Debenham in the testing and development process has been Dr. Donald Wright and Dr. Gerald Smith. Special thanks to Elena Bykow, without whose advanced programming and database skills, RoboTutor would have never been possible.
