A New Dimension in Classroom Education.
Muller, Mark T.; And Others
The use of interactive computer graphics for individualized and classroom instruction in Engineering at the University of Texas is described in this document. Two modes of instruction are discussed: (1) student individualized instruction at the terminal, and (2) classroom (group) instruction by a lecturer using time-sharing techniques. The use of a proposed device called a real-time, plotter-projector for group display is discussed, together with data on its cost and the cost effectiveness of the equipment for classroom and laboratory instruction. A list of the equipment needed for a classroom, and a photograph of the plotter-projector is included. (Author/DS)
