Computer Assisted Instruction--An Alternative Approach to Learning for Bristol Community College Students.
Desmarais, Armand; And Others
In order to investigate the use of Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) as a means of implementing an alternative method of learning for Bristol Community College students, a nationwide survey of 31 educational institutions was undertaken in 1973 (66 percent response rate). On the basis of survey responses, this document describes the CAI systems of eight selected institutions which are using CAI and are leaders in the CAI field. In addition, the CAI facilities of three southern Massachusetts institutions which either have CAI or are planning to implement CAI are described on the basis of information gleaned from site visits. Several alternative budgets for CAI implementation at Bristol are presented, calculated according to time sharing hardware with three alternative institutions, and on the basis of six alternative software systems. Sample CAI programs are presented, illustrating four possible uses of CAI: drill and practice, tutorial, simulation, and problem solving. Recommendations for implementation are made and a bibliography on CAI is appended. (NHM)
