The use of computer-based tools to teach argumentation skills has recently become quite popular. To understand the breadth of activity in this area, bridging between published results and real-world development, we conducted a survey in which 97 argumentation experts participated. Based on data from the survey, this paper summarizes the rationale and motivation behind design decisions, important lessons learned, and future research directions.
