Greenhill, L. P.; And Others
Eidophor, a new control layer television projector that projects a television image on a large screen, in color as well as in black and white, was field tested at The Pennsylvania State University. Objectives of the investigation were: to assess and compare the effects on learning of instruction presented by Eidophor on a large screen and in a large auditorium with simultaneous presentations of the same instruction on regular 24" television receivers in regular television classrooms; to test the acceptability of Eidophor among students and teachers; to explore other possible uses of Eidophor in a large university; and to collect data on Eidophor's dependability, maintenance, personnel requirements, installation and operating problems and costs. Results indicated the following: students learned as well in one situation as in the other, Eidophor will increase the usefulness of large auditoriums, for certain kinds of instruction and for many extracurricular activities, student accpetance is very high in a ratio of a two to one preference, little maintenance is required, and reliability is of a very high order.
