This report summarizes the goals, objectives, and activities of a project conducted at Kennedy-King College to provide the time and resources for instructors to develop multi-media curriculum materials for use in biology, psychology, and social science courses. Introductory material outlines project objectives in terms of resource development and student impact. Next, the project is evaluated in relation to its nine objectives: (1) to develop multi-media materials; (2) to obtain the software and equipment necessary for individualized instruction; (3) to develop faculty competencies; (4) to obtain technical personnel; (5) to promote interdisciplinary cooperation; (6) to improve student performance; (7) to increase student interest; (8) to encourage students to major in the sciences; and (9) to improve student course completion rates. This section describes resources and methods used and results attained. Then, conclusions are presented, highlighting the problems and accomplishments of the project, and future activities are projected. Finally, information on budgeting expenditures and modifications is provided. Appendices include external evaluation conclusions, forms for instructor evaluation of materials, lists of videocassettes and films selected for curriculum use, student evaluations of curriculum materials, and estimates of students who used the materials.
