The Software Gap: Relevancy in Content and Technique.
Hilliard, Robert L.
Is currently produced software helping solve specific problems, or is it geared toward maintaining outmoded educational programs? Can it be a creative service? One should ask of any given piece of software if it is produced to interrelate with all the other learning resources and experiences of the student, rather than to fit a particular machine or particular course. The International University of Communications, beginning operations in 1971, will be based on an individualized learning-tutorial system which will use educational technology to free the teacher from all the machine-like parts of his job and leave his time for personal, advisory work with students. The crucial question is whether the software industry will be able to supply the University with the highly integrated, multi-media, inter-curricular content needed for effective application of this learning system.
