The Development and Implementation of Interactive, Computer-Video Learning Tracks for the Basic Course.
Hughey, Jim D.; And Others
Two institutions of higher learning in Oklahoma have successfully implemented an interactive computer-video system of instruction in their basic communication courses. The system will be made avaliable to other institutions. Four learning principles and their implementations comprise the heart of this system including behavioral objectives, mastery learning, individual prescription, and modular flexibility. Additionally, computer-video technology has allowed instruction to be specifically tailored to the learner and has evidenced five immediate, important benefits: (1) it helped instructors individualize leaning experiences for students; (2) it helped provide multi-channel stimulation during the learning experience; (3) it helped orient the novice graduate teaching assistant and part time instructors to course content and assignments; (4) it helped update experienced teaching assistants and full time faculty; and (5) it helped facilitate the creation of innovative teaching materials through the cooperation of students, teaching assistants, part time faculty, and senior staff. Finally, experience with this system indicates that the central role of the instructor is not diminished. (One chart is included; 53 references are attached.) (KEH)
