Interactive Video at Miami-Dade Community College.
Tross, Glenn; Di Stefano, Mary F.
Based on the experiences of the Division of Computer-Based Instructional Development and Research at Miami-Dade Community College in developing interactive video programs, this paper explains what interactive video is, outlines the process used in creating such programs, and describes two specific applications of interactive video technology. First, interactive video is described as an instructional system that allows the computer to control the playing of segments of a videotape or videodisc. Next, the steps in developing an interactive videoprogram are outlined including: (1) determining terminal objectives (i.e., what the student should be able to do after completing the program); (2) determining enabling objectives (i.e., what he/she must be able to do prior to learning the terminal skills); (3) determining the sequence for teaching these objectives; (4) deciding what video segments and computer displays should be used to teach the objectives; (5) charting the program; (6) designing screen layouts; (7) writing the program; and (8) conducting a formative evaluation and revision. The following sections describe Mary F. Di Stefano's experience of developing interactive video programs for use in teaching English as a Second Language courses; and present Glenn Tross's discussion of the development of a microcomputer program, Mind Expansion through Exposure to Technology, which introduces faculty and others to communications technology.
