Educational Modules for Materials Science and Engineering. Final Report, December 1, 1977-November 30, 1983.
Roy, Rustum; Knox, Bruce E.
The major goal of the Educational Modules for Materials Science and Engineering (EMMSE) project is to experiment with a means for developing, indexing, and disseminating instructional materials in materials science and engineering. This document is the updated final report of the project. Key accomplishments discussed (presented in order of completion) include: (1) socialization--gaining of acceptance and involvement of the national/international communities; (2) a "revolutionary" model for dissemination of materials by on-site, on-demand printing from a new hybrid journal-textbook; (3) utilization of a state-of-the-art review system writing/presentations/evaluation workshops to produce clusters of modules in selected areas; (4) the beginning of adaptation of digitized production, storage, and dissemination of modules and appropriate data bases; and (5) analysis of curriculum and course content, user needs, and internal/external linkages of content. Supporting documentation, provided in appendices, includes EMMSE tasks for the third phase of the project; cumulative index to volumes I and II of the Journal of Educational Modules for Materials Science and Engineering, arranged by topic and materials class; guide for locating teaching aids in all media; priority topic list (with author guidelines); and other information.
