Toward a Market Success for CAI; An Overview of the TICCIT Program.
Stetten, Kenneth J.
A new computer-assisted instruction (CAI) system for college teaching is being tested in two locations by the MITRE Corporation. The system, called TICCIT (Time-Share Interactive Computer-Controlled Information Television), now interacts with more than 100 students, each moving at his own pace, for four semesters of community college math and English. Average response time to student inputs is less than one half second. The student terminal includes color TV screen, headphones and full alphanumeric keyboard. It costs about $900, approximately 25 percent of total system costs per terminal. Operating costs could average less than one dollar per terminal-use hour. A typical hour begins with a short movie followed by presentation of a "menu" showing segments of the presentation which can be accessed any time; for example, "mini-lesson", "instruction", "why take this lesson", "test", and "games". The teaching strategies have been developed independent of content so that different course material can be plugged in the programs at some future date. (MG)
