Development of Chemical Analysis Training Programs for Fisheries Technicians Utilizing an Interactive Microcomputer Videotape System. Final Report.
Walton, James M.
A project was conducted to develop a series of interactive microcomputer-controlled videotape training programs in chemical analysis of water quality for the fisheries technician program at Peninsula College (Washington). Improved color video equipment was obtained during the year for development of the training films. Interactive instruction and testing for each training film was developed using a random-access videotape recorder controlled by an Apple IIe microcomputer. Software developed by BCD Associates was purchased for computer program development. Software updates received from BCD late in the year improved the quality of the interaction and program development. Through these activities, eight video training films in chemical analysis of water quality were prepared, and instruction and testing were developed for these training films using a microcomputer and random-access videotape recorder. The expertise gained in this project will be used to develop more interactive video instruction to encompass all chemical tests performed in the fisheries program. (A description of each of the eight videotapes is included in the report.) (KC)
