Tutored Videotape Instruction.
Gibbons, James F.
This paper describes a new technique for using videotaped educational materials that could form an important part of a satellite based educational delivery system. The method uses videotapes of regular classroom courses for the instruction of small groups of remote students who are assisted by paraprofessional tutors. The method is called the Tutored Videotape Instruction (TVI) technique. The paper is developed as follows: There is first a brief description of the technique followed by a set of guidelines used to develop the program. Next are described experiments in which the TVI format is compared to both classroom instruction and "real time" television. The factors that appear to be most important for the success of the TVI technique are isolated, and an estimate of program costs and the value of developing a satellite based TVI program is presented.
