Computer Based Learning in the Soviet Union--II. A Report on a Study Visit to Moscow, November-December 1978.
Rushby, N. J.
This report examines the state of computer based learning (CBL) in the Soviet Union based upon information gained during a visit to the Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys, Moscow State University, and the Institute for Problems of Higher Schools. The visit had two aims: to study the political, educational, and technological pressures on CBL in the USSR, and to establish a channel for the continuing exchange of information about CBL between the UK and the Soviet Union. Specific topics examined include teaching programming; the role of statistics and economics in CBL; software philosophy; user support; information systems management; teaching foreign languages, chemistry, and physics; Institute role in innovation; CBL system development; automated dialog and corrective teaching; and information exchange. Nine summary conclusions and recommendations based on the visit are included. (CMV)
