The Use of Programmed Learning and Computer-Based Instruction Techniques to Teach Electrical Engineering Network Analysis.
Johnson, Roger L.
Two types of programed instruction sequences (inquiry and tutorial) were used on the PLATO system to teach electrical network analysis (EE 322, University of Illinois). Two groups of students were selected to use each of the two types of instruction. Both of the instruction sequences were to provide the same performance objectives. The report describes the design and use of the instruction on the PLATO teaching system and summarizes the performance of the students with respect to the two methods of teaching. The study indicated that the desired performance objectives were obtained satisfactorily in both cases. Although in certain aspects the inquiry teaching program exhibited some advantages, a teaching program which could make available all of the facilities contained in the present program would be more desirable.
