The first of three volumes of papers presented at the 1979 ADCIS convention, this collection includes most of the 30 papers presented at the general session and 34 project reports. The general session opened with seven papers on various aspects of videodisc technology and five papers describing phases in the life of CBE sites. The remaining presentations were concerned with a variety of topics, such as the use of a speech synthesizer with CBI, intelligent instruction systems, learning theory, evaluation, training teachers and administrators in computer applications, learner interaction in CAI, course development, authoring, and the application of bibliographic information retrieval techniques to CBE materials; a report on the development and implementation of CICERO at the Open University for distance learning is included. Projects described in brief reports include a university educational technology center, simulations for medical training, business applications, providing feedback in very large classes, CAI for the deaf, and CAI at several educational levels. Some papers include brief bibliographies. (RAO)
