Use of Portable Video Recorders as an Instructional System Development Tool.
Smith, Edgar A.
Small portable videotape recorders can be used economically and effectively as "scratch pads" during course development. Current off-the-shelf equipment can be used for data gathering during the analysis of systems requirements and initial development of course equipment and test materials. Such equipment has been beneficial in revealing objectives that might otherwise be overlooked, developing a logical presentation without extraneous material, establishing definable objectives, and encouraging self-evaluation as an integral part of the learning process. During the development and validation stages, the equipment can be used for initial scripting, for editing and re-editing, for obtaining content approval, and for individual tryout by students. Finally, the techniques enable the course writers to obtain a viewable end product before they have to commit themselves on the media to be used. The videotapes can then be used as the draft or shooting script for the development of the manual, motion picture, or prenarrated slide sequence. The major criterion is that the equipment be available so that systems designers can use it with a minimum of interruption of their creative endeavors. (Author/JK)
