Guidelines for Employing Graphics in a Videodisc Training Delivery System. ISD for Videodisc Training Systems. First Annual Report. Vol. III.
Merrill, Paul F.; Bunderson, C. Victor
Both general and specific guidelines are proposed for the use of different types of graphics under specified conditions which would be relevant to various instructional applications of the videodisc. The general guidelines cut across several conditional variables--e.g., color, realism, motion--while the specific guidelines are directly related to the following 11 behavior categories: rule learning and using, classifying, identifying symbols, detecting, making decisions, recalling bodies of knowledge and using verbal information, performing gross motor skills, steering and guiding--continuous movement, recalling procedures--positioning movement, voice communicating, and attitude learning. Also included in this report are discussions of dynamic computer graphics; the relationship of graphics to learner characteristics; graphics and the videodisc, including integration of motion sequences and still frames, ability to slow or freeze action during demonstration of procedures, and different branching strategies; the ability of the intelligent videodisc to combine the advantages of the book, television, and computer-assisted instruction; changes which the videodisc will require in current methods of media selection; and implications of this study for further research. More than 50 references are listed. (CHC)
