Computerized Multi-Media Instructional Television. COMIT. Proceedings of a Symposium.
Andrews, Gordon C., Ed.; Knapper, Christopher K., Ed.
A joint research project in educational techniques, which was conducted by the University of Waterloo and the IBM Corporation, explored the use of color television with random-access videotape under computer control. At the end of the three-year project, papers were solicited from all COMIT (Computerized Multi-Media Instructional Television) participants, and 12 of the 15 professors who had authored courses submitted papers. A representative sample of seven papers was presented at a one-day COMIT Symposium, some accompanied by videotaped demonstrations that illustrated the teaching techniques used. In order to provide as complete a record of the project as possible, all 12 of the papers from participants are included in this volume (grouped, where possible, by subject), as well as comments by the project director and the coordinator from IBM and a summary of the pedagogical lessons learned from COMIT. Courses described include environmental engineering, survey design, advanced calculus, organic synthesis, biology, human movement, ice hockey practice, football, leisure experience, history of art, and English. The appendix contains the schedule for the COMIT Symposium with the names of the speakers. (Author/JEG)
