Computers in Instruction: Their Future for Higher Education.
Levien, Roger E., Ed.
The goal of this conference was not exchange of information, but rather, identification of the decisions that should be made by higher education, industry, and government to facilitate the valid growth of the instructional use of the computer. Four major questions concerned the conferees: What will be the computer's capabilities and cost? How will computer services be provided to the campus? How will instructional materials be provided? and How will higher education be affected by instructional computer use? The reports of the conference sessions are divided into three sections; first, discussions of the range of possible answers to the major questions; second, reports on the recommendations developed by the several studies of instructional computer use that are currently under way or have been recently completed; and third, specific recommendations for higher education, industry, and government.
