The Audiographic Learning Facility: Objectives and Design. Research Report.
Slamecka, Vladimir; Jensen, Alton P.
Details are provided about the Audiographic Learning Facility, a pilot system for remote conversational instruction and learning developed by the School of Information and Computer Science at Georgia Institute of Technology. The report describes how learning materials, stored and reproduced in the form of a graphically supported narrative-lecture/blackboard presentation, are modularly structured into learning units which are randomly accessible via telephone from student stations. Further information is supplied on the objectives pursued by the development of the Facility, its design characteristics (learning materials, hardware, and control software), and its use for learning in a conversational mode--replacing live classroom in undergraduate and graduate education.
