Computer Assisted Instruction for Management and Business Study: A Look to the Future.
Sullivan, Daniel John
Business and management study programs are making increasing but still limited use of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) as an instructional tool. The cost of course development and design for business and management instruction is high, but declining hardware costs and increasing use will lower per student hour costs. CAI is now used primarily for drill and practice in mathematics, word usage, and technical skills. Only recently has it been used in complex situations involving education and business theory. Limitations in the successful application of CAI to curriculum development are due to distrust of and lack of confidence in the computer and skepticism regarding the instructional capability of any automated teaching technique. A survey of schools of business administration and management revealed that such programs now use CAI for about 5 percent of instruction. They are expected to increase their use in the next ten years to about 20 percent. (CH)
