CERL PLATO Lesson Catalog: Curricular and Utility Programs.
Lyman, Elisabeth R.; Postlewait, Deborah S.
This comprehensive catalog of available instructional materials for use with the PLATO system lists completed lessons which have been used in actual instructional situations or have had adequate testing to ensure that the files are in working order. Printed directly from the CERL online catalog, "uicat," the information provided for each citation includes the subject, a subheading, title with its PLATO code, year of first copyright and publication date, author, location of the author at the time the lesson was produced, an abstract, auxiliary equipment required, lesson completion time, and intended audience. Library of Congress subject headings have been used to catalog the lessons whenever possible, and extensive cross references are provided. The materials listed range in level of difficulty from the primary level through higher education, and embrace a wide variety of disciplines; e.g., reading; basic mathematics; languages, including English composition and English as a second language; business and accounting; botany, chemistry, and physics; algebra; statistics; engineering education; psychology; sociology; music; military science; teacher training; and medical education, including simulations for physicians, nursing and pharmacology courses, and courses for physician's assistants. Programs introducing the PLATO system and authoring PLATO courseware are also provided among a number of "utility" and computer science courses. (CHC)
