An On-Line Computer Managed Introduction to Indexing: An Individualized Multi-Media Instructional Package Compared to the Traditional Method, Nine Hours of Teacher-Group Contact.
A systems approach model was used to develop a multi-media instructional package for a three weeks unit on indexing in a graduate library science course. The instructional package consisted of various combinations of media determined by following a curriculum model. The specific media combinations were cassette tapes to guide students at their own pace through introductory lectures and explanations of diagrams, 2 x 2 slides, sample indexes, specimen index cards, computer-assisted lessons, a programmed text and other suggested readings, search exercises with computer- and manually-searched indexes, a scheduled seminar with the professor, and optional individual as well as small group conferences. The multi-media instructional package was tested in two experiments. In the first experiment, performance and attitude of students exposed to the traditional, teacher-oriented method (Group I) and the multi-media method (Group II) were compared. The multi-media method was used in a second experiment with another group of students, Group III. After three weeks of instruction, the mean scores of the three groups (one control and two experimental) did not differ significantly in regard to achievement or attitude toward the computer-managed method of instruction.
