Simulations Using a Computer/Videodisc System: Instructional Design Considerations.
Ehrlich, Lisa R.
Instructional design considerations involved in using level four videodisc systems when designing simulations are explored. Discussion of the hardware and software system characteristics notes that computer based training offers the features of text, graphics, color, animation, and highlighting techniques, while a videodisc player offers all of the traditional audiovisual training media attributes of audio, running video, and still pictures. Various instructional design issues are investigated, including those relating to media characteristics and media integration, interactive videodisc simulation design considerations, and a team approach to designing and developing simulations using these systems and the required skill sets. Additional discussion briefly examines emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and knowledge-based systems and the promise of their use with simulations. Ten references are listed.
