Barker, Philip; And Others
The five papers in this collection discuss various aspects of the Electronic Learning-Package Factory (ELF) project at the University of Bradford in England. In the first paper, "Adoption of CAL in Higher Education: A Cooperative Approach to Research, Development and Implementation," Philip Barker considers the opportunities for collaborative implementation of simple user-friendly software tools in computer assisted learning (CAL) in higher education. In the second paper, "The Computerisation of a UK University: The Bradford Experience," Tom Stonier, Stephen J. Fallows, and Andrew Radtke examine the background to the computerization project and the rationales behind providing networking facilities to the entire campus and encouraging ownership of microcomputers. In the third paper, "The Development of ELFsoft: A User-Friendly CAL Authoring System," T. R. King and S. J. Fallows examine a form-based design system called the ELF Starter Pack, which can be used by novice computer users to generate simple but sophisticated software. The features and technical requirements of the ELF Starter Pack are reviewed by T. R. King and S. J. Fallows in the fourth paper, "ELFSoft: A Simple But Effective CAL Authoring System." (In the fifth paper, "A Study of Attitudes towards Computerisation of the University of Bradford," A. L. Radtke and T. Stonier describe a survey of 190 students and 321 faculty designed to ascertain their opinions on computerization of the university, as well as to collect data on their current and projected usage of microcomputers.
