General Information of Project C-BE.
Allan, John J., III; Lagowski, J. J.
Using the expertise of faculty members of various departments, the University of Texas at Austin has initiated a four-year, two million dollar project, called C-BE, to examine the capacity of computer-assisted instruction (CIA) to improve teaching in the sciences and in engineering. The computer can assist the instructor by doing grading, bookkeeping, experiment monitoring, basic instruction, simulations, and data processing. When the instructor supplies a list of behavioral objectives, achievement measurement standards, and technical limitations, the systems analyst can then design the computer materials necessary to meet the instructor's requirements. The goals of Project C-BE are to quantitatively demonstrate the effect of CAI on the effectiveness of college teaching and to examine the relative costs. The computerized courses that are being designed could potentially be shared with other institutions. (EMH)
