How smart should we be in order to cope with the complex authoring process of smart courseware? Lately this question gains more attention with attempts to simplify the process and efforts to define authoring systems and tools to support it. The goal of this paper is to specify an evolutional perspective on the Intelligent Educational Systems (IES) authoring and in this context to define the authoring framework EASE: powerful in its functionality, generic in its support of instructional strategies and user-friendly in its interaction with the author. The evolutional authoring support is enabled by an authoring task ontology that at a meta-level defines and controls the configuration and tuning of an authoring tool for a specific authoring process. In this way we achieve more control over the evolution of the intelligence in IES and reach a computational formalization of IES engineering.
