The ability to argue is essential in many aspects of life, but traditional face-to-face tutoring approaches do not scale up well A solution for this dilemma may be computer-supported argumentation (CSA) The evaluation of CSA approaches in different domains has led to mixed results To gain insights into the challenges and future prospects of CSA we conducted a survey among teachers, researchers, and system developers Our investigation points to optimism regarding the potential success and importance of CSA.
