San Antonio State Hospital, TX. Office of Education Services.
This report presents a discussion of important issues surrounding the use of interactive instructional technology by vocational educators. It considers interactive instructional television system components with special attention to system interface considerations, software considerations, and design and development of interactive instructional television lessons and programs. Designing programs to accommodate two distinct types of information, i.e., promoted inputs along the program's normal course of preparation and user-initiated interruptions is addressed, as is screen design. Other topics include the menu-branching capabilities and the testing/assessment implications of interactive instructional television. The instructional, psychological, and job-related impact is also discussed. A scenario of the design and use of a sample interactive instructional television program is presented. A final section details results of the project, including identification of the technical equipment and definitions of the educational technology needed to develop effective educational packages.
