Computer-Assisted Instruction Information Exchange. Final Report.
Entelek, Inc., Newburyport, MA.
The final technical report is presented on the establishment and operation of an Exchange of Information among universities, corporations and government agencies concerned with the use of the computer as an aid to the instructional process. Four modes of information dissemination are described. A monthly dissemination of information on cards comprises the first mode; data distributed includes computer-assisted instruction (CAI) research abstracts, CAI program specifications, computer-managed instruction (CMI) research abstracts, and CAI facility descriptions. Descriptions of the seven conferences making up the second mode include special topics covered: CAI languages, CAI in technical education, CAI in health professions, simulation in CAI, and instructional strategies in CAI. The third mode consisted of a three-week workshop which is considered briefly in the report. The final mode, annual integration of the data into literature surveys, is also examined. Methods of data collection (site visits and questionnaires) and classification (construction of CAI and CMI thesauri) are included. (Author/SP)
