Experimentation With Computer-Assisted Instruction in Technical Education. Semi-Annual Progress Report.
Mitzel, Harold E.; Brandon, George L.
A report is given of the activities carried out during the first seven months of a computer-assisted instruction (CAI) project at Pennsylvania State University, begun in May 1965. The project's objectives are listed as: 1) to determine how CAI can be used to present core courses in technical education; 2) to prepare CAI materials in technical mathematics, engineering science, and communication skills for post-secondary students; 3) to train individuals to prepare CAI materials and to research computer applications in technical education; and 4) to disseminate information about CAI. The first section of the report deals with the physical facilities provided by the University and the equipment configuration used, while the following segment describes the initial course development activities in the technical education subjects. Brief reports of research findings are presented in the third section and the final part of the report consists of an appendix which provides an evaluative review of CAI efforts throughout the country.
