IDA and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a half-day workshop on October 26, 2017. The first of two workshop panels discussed the history and use of digital tutors. The second panel explored whether digital tutor technology is now ready to use in advancing the skills of the nation’s technical workforce. The consensus of workshop participants was that the technology is indeed ready for wider and more routine use.
