Computers in Education: Their Use and Cost.
Part one of this document consists of the findings and recommendations of the President's Science Advisory Committee. The report considers the use of computers in undergraduate, secondary, and higher education. It also discusses the needs of the computer science student, interaction between research and educational uses of computers, computer languages, and the need for faculty orientation in the use of computers. The needs of a large university computational facility are outlined, and methods for estimating the cost and capacity of such a facility are demonstrated. Some examples of the use of computers in course work are noted and evaluated. Part two provides information about estimating the costs of purchasing, installing, implementing, and operating a media system. A methodology for obtaining such estimates is presented, both in a general form, and in a small number of generalized environments. Comparative costs estimated for various media systems are presented, along with some cost-saving considerations. The effects of certain regulatory agencies on various media systems are discussed.
