COMIT English Module.
Beam, Paul
This COMIT English module used most of the interrelated devices of sound, sonic pen, keyboard, slide, and terminal display in a lesson which, depending on the student's interest and ability, might last from four to ten hours and formed an integral part of a second year course in critical analysis. Four contexts were included in the subject of analytic criticism: linear, setting, imagery, and structure. Students were allowed to review within and across categories, and to seek out additional information at any point in the lesson. Complete records were kept of learner responses, and analyzed at the degree of statistical function requested. Results of student performance were high in comparison with the results from control groups in conventional lecture/tutorial situations. Student reactions varied between acute frustration over technical delays to strong feelings of accomplishment and an awareness of materials and methods more complete than any single previous learning experience.
