Computer-Assisted Instruction in the Context of the Advanced Instructional System: Authoring Support Software. Final Report.
Montgomery, Ann D.; Judd, Wilson A.
This report details the design, development, and implementation of computer software to support the cost-effective production of computer assisted instruction (CAI) within the context of the Advanced Instructional System (AIS) located at Lowry Air Force Base. The report supplements the computer managed Air Force technical training that is currently supported by AIS, giving the Air Force a full function computer based instructional system. In describing the interactive authoring editor, presentation program, data collection, and data print software components of the CAI system, this report indicates that the editor simplifies the authoring task by (a) eliminating the need for the author to use a computer language, (b) structuring the task, (c) providing computer-aided input, and (d) providing extensive formatting and editing capabilities. The software also provides conditional and unconditional branching that can be specified from the editor. (Author)
