Education in Electronics: A Multimedia Metaphor.
Cambourakis, George; And Others
Those interested in creating or utilizing computer assisted instruction (CAI) tools for education in electronics have a wide range of multimedia options. Programs are becoming available which offer circuit simulations, mathematical packages for formula processing, instrumentation synthesis and simulation, drafting tools, hypertext construction aids and other authoring tools, object-oriented database capabilities, and multimedia peripherals for video and sound. This paper describes many of those options and proposes a CAI tool which contains an authoring module for the instructor, a student module containing the information content and help utilities, and an examiner module which creates questionnaires and other testing instruments. Optimum programming and implementation scenarios are explained. Five figures accompany the discussion. (BEW)
