Interactive Video Disc Systems for Education.
Bennion, Junius L.; Schneider, Edward W.
The basic design of the videodisc technology, especially the three features of the freeze frame, electronic address, and fast random access, makes possible the creation of a new audiovisual delivery system that has revolutionary applications for education in individualized interactive instruction. In addition to the linear playback mode for home movie and television rerun entertainment, the optical videodisc is capable of providing branching because of random access and electronic addressing capabilities. The system is also able to accommodate many psychological procedures for enhancing learning, such as the capability of inserting questions in still frames or aural modes at any point. Special features offered by the video disc system which make it more flexible than TICCIT are motion control, greater audio capabilities, and the lack of need for an external computer. (Author/CMV)
