Specification and Development of Computer Aids to ISD.
O'Neal, A. Fred
This paper first notes the evolution of instructional development which has led to a need for the specification and development of computer aids to ISD activities, then notes several current efforts to meet this need, and finally describes the development of an Authoring Management System (AMS) designed to help manage the development phase of ISD. The AMS will track and coordinate the progress through all steps of the development, production, review, and revision of the instructional materials for entire courses on an objective by objective basis. It will aid in matching personal and production resources to production schedules, and will help assign available resources in the most efficient manner. It will establish and monitor deadlines for all intermediate products and function as a report generator yielding a variety of management reports from the cumulative data base it maintains. Finally it will function as a management simulation allowing manipulation for planning and prediction purposes. (WBC)
