Audio-Tutorial Instruction; An Expanded Approach.
Herrick, Merlyn C.
The University of Missouri-Columbia School of Medicine is developing an audio-tutorial system with several unique features. A Didactor, a device which provides most of the capabilities of computer-assisted instruction but at a fraction of the cost, is the center of the system. The Didactor is combined with tape recordings and slides to present a learning strategy that incorporates the recognition of student errors and the capability of modifying the program to meet the errors. In addition, the device can present both branching and linear program formats. The associated tape recordings are available in regular or compressed times depending on the needs of the student. The primary limiting factor of this system is the programer's ability to perceive and develop learning strategies. The system is part of a total audio-instructional design that also includes closed-circuit television and sophisticated audiovisual aids. A cost effectiveness study of the entire system remains to be done. (MC)
