"Dial-Access" as an Instructional Medium.
North, R. Stafford
Dial access in education has been found to provide useful instructional experiences, but it is not useful in all conditions for all purposes. Circumstances in which dial access retrieval systems might be effective as part of an instructional program can be identified by examining special features of such systems: the types of audio and visual media they can make available; the qualities which they can impart on these media, such as immediacy, ease and efficiency of presentation, flexibility, and individualization; the various appropriate learning procedures which can be used, such as presentation, programing, drill, audio-tutorial, problem solving, and resources; and the types of access required in the use of the media as in the type dualities of random-scheduled, exclusive-common, and remote-direct.
