The multimedia computer package DIAGNOSIS provides a training aid to students of crop protection for pest and disease diagnosis. The program simulates field and laboratory scenarios, in which students must actively seek clues and interpret observations on the cause of plant problems. Output may consist of text, graphics and video. The software allows the simple construction of local scenarios by individual tutors. Once students have recorded their diagnosis, justification and recommendations for action, they receive an automatic debriefing on their problem-solving approach. Student input is recorded to disk for later assessment by the tutor.
