ICCAL, the International Conference on Computers and Learning, is a forum for the exchange of ideas and presentation of developments in the theory andpractice of computer uses in education, with a focus on post-secondary education. ICCAL '92 was held at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada, June 17-20, 1992. This volume presents the proceedings of ICCAL '92, and features 45 submitted and 6 invited papers. Topics addressed include hypermedia systems, multimedia learning environments, educational strategies, knowledge based tutors, program visualization systems, intelligent tutoring systems, mouse and touchscreen comparison, cooperative multimedia, authoring systems, language learning, spelling remediation, teaching geometry, a tutoring assistant for arithmetic, a learning package for statistics, conversational pattern learning, adaptive navigational tools, and many more.
