CONDUIT: An Experiment in Educational Computer Usage and Program Exchange.
CONDUIT is a consortium of five regional computer networks, and is designed to 1) establish a center for information collection and dissemination concerning computer-related curriculum materials; and 2) to identify and evaluate factors governing ease of movement of computer-related curriculum materials from one school to another. The information clearinghouse goal of CONDUIT will rely on a data base built from Entry Documentation Forms for each curriculum item. Testing will begin with workshops in seven different disciplines conducted by the regional networks, but the major testing will be conducted independently by the Human Resources Research Organization. CONDUIT's schedule calls for initial assembly of the data base and beginning of testing in the summer and fall of 1972, with a general catalog to be available in the summer or fall of 1973, and the final report to be completed by spring, 1974.
