Time-shared, Interactive, Computer-Controlled Information Television (TICCIT) is a computer-based system of instruction designed to provide low-cost, high-quality education that is completely individualized. Using inexpensive minicomputers, color television sets, and typewriter-like keyboards, TICCIT can serve as many as 128 students simultaneously. The system is designed to substitute for classroom instruction. It permits efficient use of instructional space, frees instructors from routine teaching tasks, and provides more flexible scheduling for individual students. TICCIT courses in English composition and mathematics have been installed in community colleges in Virginia and Arizona, and TICCIT courses form part of the curriculum of Brigham Young University. TICCIT systems are being used for training at several military installations. The newest application of TICCIT is in the area of special education. TICCIT programs serve severely handicapped, homebound children in Amherst, New York, and deaf students at the Model Secondary School for the Deaf in Washington, D.C. (Author/PF)
