Low-Cost Terminal Alternative for Learning Center Managers. Final Report.
Nix, C. Jerome; And Others
This study established the feasibility of replacing high performance and relatively expensive computer terminals with less expensive ones adequate for supporting specific tasks of Advanced Instructional System (AIS) at Lowry AFB, Colorado. Surveys of user requirements and available devices were conducted and the results used in a system analysis. The results of the analysis formed the basis for determining the detailed hardware requirements and subsequent hardware selection, procurement, and installation. Additionally, the software modifications necessary to accommodate the new hardware were made and the resultant total system was evaluated in an operational training environment. (Author)
