Computer-Based Hindi Pedagogy.
Bhatia, Tej K.
This paper brings out the structure and salient features of the Computer-Based Hindi Teaching (CBHT) course, which is being developed at the University of Illinois. The following topics are treated specifically: (1) areas of the Hindi Language course that can be efficiently and economically taught with computer-based pedagogy; (2) a demonstration of how the CBHT Course supplements non-computer-based Hindi teaching; and (3) claims about the development of testing procedures that are more satisfactory and efficient than procedures realized in non-computer-based teaching. In addition, the paper has implications for computer-assisted instruction. The course has been developed on the PLATO IV computer. PLATO IV, (Programmed Logic for Automated Teaching), is an economically feasible, large-scale, computer-controlled teaching system. It is being used to teach courses in medicine, science, and a number of foreign languages. (Author/AMH)
