Terminals for Education.
Bork, Alfred M.
The effectiveness of different types of computer terminals in programing learning is discussed with special reference to the experience of the Physics Computer Development Project. Experience with ten types of terminals including hardcopy terminals of several speeds, alphanumeric and graphic terminals is reviewed. Special consideration is given to the design of terminals, keyboard layout, use of characters and symbols, and the problem of terminal identification through software. Use of graphics and other optional features, using different computer speeds, and the differences between hard copy and soft copy are discussed. (RB)
