The Uses of Video Tape in Training and Development.
Stroh, Thomas Frederick
Video tape recording systems are used in a variety of ways in training programs for commerce and industry. A questionnaire, which drew responses from about 200 companies, identified the advantages as well as the problems of video tape usage. Many of its uses in training of industrial and sales personnel involve role playing, which in itself presents particular problems if it is not to create a threatening situation for the trainee. Most of the companies surveyed felt that their investment in video tape equipment was worthwhile. (Appendix includes a list of universities and colleges offering courses in video tape recording; equipment manufacturers; and the questionnaire sent to companies using video tape recording for training.)
