Lyman, Elisabeth R.
PLATO (programmed Logic for Automatic Teaching Operations) is a computer-based teaching system which was developed in the Coordinated Science Laboratory at the University of Illinois to explore the possibilities of automation in individual instruction. The history of the PLATO program is summarized here, along with a list of courses which used PLATO during the academic year 1971-72. A summary by subject area of information about PLATO materials used by students either in the past or at present describes PLATO curriculum materials in the many fields, including accounting, astronomy, medicine, biology, foreign languages, engineering, mathematics, urban planning, and veterinary medicine. A chronological bibliography of all PLATO publications is also provided. (JY)
