Evolution of a Instructional Design.
Packard, Abbot L.; And Others
This document discusses strategies for using computer-assisted instruction to introduce graduate students in education to research and statistics. The plan's criteria for an ideal learning environment, including individualized self-paced progress, a hierarchy of well-organized and well-articulated goals, and multiple cues leading to goal attainment with feedback mechanisms for each cue, are based on Brunswik's probabilistic theories of human behavior. Pilot studies were done in screen design and in the integration of text, audio, graphics, and even animation. One of the most important objectives in developing a computer-assisted learning environment is giving learners power over how quickly and by what medium they receive knowledge.
