The Couzens Machine. A Computerized Learning Exchange. Final Report, 1973-74.
Davis, Ken, Comp.; Libengood, Richard, Comp.
The Couzens Machine is a computerized learning exchange and information service developed for the residents of Couzens Hall, a dormitory at the University of Michigan. Organized as a collective within the framework of a course and supported by an instructional development grant from the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching, the Couzens Machine provided over 400 dormitory residents with personalized, computer-generated printouts. These printouts included information on: (1) other Couzens residents who shared the recipient's interests, (2) upcoming events in the Ann Arbor area in categories preselected by the recipient, and (3) miscellaneous topics including cafeteria menus, horoscopes, and haircutting, typing, and laundry services.
