ArgTeach - a learning tool for Argumentation Theory


Hello and welcome to ArgTeach, the learning tool for Argumentation Theory.

Read the paper on ArgTeach.

You can download ArgTeach here. To run ArgTeach, you will need the prolog interpreter SWI-Prolog version 6.6.1 or above and Java version 1.7 or above. Make sure that you use the correct versions for your operating system, and choose 64 or 32 bits accordingly.

Installation on Windows

After installing SWI and Java on Windows, you have to add the jpl library to your global path variable.:

Then unpack to a folder of your choice and execute ArgTeach.jar . In case double clicking on ArgTeach.jar does not work, execute it via the command line using "java -jar ArgTeach.jar".

Installation on Linux (for bash shell)

After ensuring that you have the correct Java version you need to install SWI-Prolog:

Unpack and run the following from the folder of ArgTeach containing ArgTeach.jar (substitute the correct folder name in case the SWI folders have a different name) To run ArgTeach without specifying the SWI path every time, create a bash-file named argTeach containing the following:
java -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/swi-prolog/lib/amd64/ -jar ArgTeach.jar
Then simply run

On both Windows and Linux, make sure you leave the folder disposition as it is after unpacking, otherwise you might have trouble running the software.
For information on how to create your own frameworks, please read the README file in the tools folder.

If you encounter any problems or have any questions, please contact Claudia Schulz or Jeremie Dauphin

Happy labelling!
