Curricular and Computer System Compatibility of CAI Programs for Multi-University Use.
Hall, Keith A.
A brief introduction to developmental efforts in computer assisted instruction (CAI) at Pennsylvania State University is followed by a description of a program of mobile CAI facilities inaugurated in 1970 as part of the inservice continuing education program for teachers. The paper includes very brief descriptions of the graduate level courses included in the system, the actual physical facilities used for the mobile project, and the current implementation schedule that is being used. Finally there is a short section on curricular compatibility and another on systems compatibility or convertability, in which some special applications programs which provide documentation and eliminate the need for coding curriculum material in special computer languages are described.
