Videotex and Education: A Review of British Developments.
Real, Michael R.
Defining videotex, viewdata, teletext, and their cognates as systems that transmit computerized pages of information for remote display (on a television screen, variously integrating computers, and video, broadcasting, telephone, typewriter, and related technologies), this report explores educational and related applications of videotex technologies in Great Britain. Topics discussed are: (1) the standard videotex terminology, (2) operating British videotex technologies (CEEFAX, ORACLE, and Prestel), (3) previous studies of videotex and education, (4) current videotex education projects in Great Britain (among them videotex as an informational listing of educational opportunities, multiple choice learning on Prestel, CEEFAX in classroom experiments, and the BBC's computer literacy project), and (5) videotex potential for education.
