Computer Managed Instruction: Toward Individualized Learning.
Moore, Kent; And Others
The authors describe the functions of an integrated systems approach in solving the administrative, academic, and logistical problems of a large university department. They discuss the roles of a computer managed instruction system for the University of Florida's College of Journalism and Communication. First, the system can record student and faculty profiles, so that instruction can reflect individual student requirements. The computer managed system can also be of value in the shaping of educational objectives by identifying, grouping, and building modules of instruction and establishing the objectives for each module at various levels of recognition. Finally, once the student profiles and the instructional objectives have both been established, the appropriate "instructional mix" for each student can be determined. The authors also discuss the purpose of computer assisted instruction within the computer managed system, the role of the system in the college's relationship with media professionals, and possibilities for research utilizing the computer managed instruction system.
