Transferability of Computer-Based Learning Materials.
Bork, Alfred
In order to get a comprehensive view of the problems and present development of the transferability to other locations of computer-based learning materials, it is necessary to examine short-range versus long-range viewpoints and the distinctions between computer-related aspects and those aspects associated with innovative learning and teaching techniques, using as examples present computer systems. With regard to short-range computer aspects, it is determined that the more systems the computer-based materials can run on, the less interesting pedagogically the materials are. Major problems regarding short-range innovative teaching aspects are political and sociological or involve instructors learning whether available materials are suitable for their course and reliable. Due to the changing computer technology, when we consider the long-range point of view, no computer aspects of transferability are important. However, the long-range view of innovative learning aspects poses problems with the marketing of future materials, the development of new materials based on the existence of the computer, and new modes of education.
