Learning With Computers; Today and Tomorrow.
This paper describes the present practical use of computers in two large beginning physics courses at the University of California, Irvine; discusses the versatility and desirability of computers in the field of education; and projects the possible future directions of computer-based learning. The advantages and disadvantages of educational networking (including regional computer centers for education) and the stand-alone, one-on-one computer are discussed. One stand-alone system now being developed for a home-based videodisc system which attaches to a television set is described. It is suggested that computers will occupy a more important role in the educational process in the future than they do at present. (KKC)
