Final Report of the Computer Assisted Learning Test Project. Report No. 19.
Van der Drift, K. D.; And Others
A pilot project was conducted to gain information to advise the Board of Directors at the University of Leyden as to the feasibility of using a computerized system to aid in instructional programs in the social sciences, law, medicine, arts, mathematics, and natural sciences at a low cost. The pilot project is divided into four parts which are related one to another, to investigate (1) practical applications and cost of available computer assisted learning (CAL) systems, (2) the cost effectiveness of CAL in relation to other methods of teaching and other instructional media, and (3) the expected demand for CAL; and (4) to use these views as a starting point for proposals for the most favored development of CAL. The conditions for a successful realization of CAL, the necessity of cooperation at the department, university, and national levels, the actual choice of a system, the organization of CAL at the university, and recommendations are given for the realization of an effective and efficient use of CAL at the University of Leyden. A list of 19 references and an annex listing CAL systems assessed by students and by the authors are provided. (CHC)
