The TICCIT Project: Design Strategy for Educational Innovation. ICUE Technical Report No. 4.
Bunderson, C. Victor
The educational contributions and courseware design strategies which have evolved at Brigham Young University in the course of developing TICCIT (Time-sharing Interactive Computer-Controlled Information Television) are given. The Mitre Corporation and the University of Texas CAI Laboratory also cooperated in this project, which is an advance version of computer-assisted instruction. Discussed is a systems approach to educational goals and needs and the derivation of goals from needs and values. Specified in this report are some parameters of the TICCIT courseware system and the design strategy, learner control, and mastery techniques used by the developers. The roles of students, teachers, and other educators are outlined in the context of the instructional needs in mathematics and English at community colleges. The paper ends with a discussion of effectiveness goals and institutional goals of TICCIT. (WH)
