A Position Paper on CAI Research and Development. A Series Two Paper from ERIC at Stanford.
Feldhusen, John H.; Lorton, Paul, Jr.
After a critical review of the papers on Computer-Assisted Instruction (CAI) of several prominent educators, recommendations are proffered for CAI systems improvements prior to new research. These include replacing the typed message with an inexpensive cathode ray tube, developing the student interface as an efficient and pleasant carrel which affords access to several media, making available time sharing service and terminals to avoid artificial constraints on instruction, developing one set of programing languages for several modes of instruction and for the author mode, and developing some lengthy courses to serve as vehicles of research and as models of CAI potential. Concluding the paper are abstracts of the papers by Zinn, Rogers, Kanner, Stolurow, Oettinger and Marks, Kopstein and Seidel, Randall and Blaschke, and General Learning Corporation. These abstracts were reviewed at the beginning of this paper. (Author/SP)
