Olivier, William P.
This paper provides teachers and trainers with the concepts and procedures involved in using interactive videodisc technology for instruction. Described first are types of individualized instruction that have influenced videodisc development: programmed and computer-aided instruction, as well as computer graphics. Then the author explains how video technology operates, stating the advantages of the optical videodisc over videotape. Next, he illustrates different configurations for learner interaction with video. Advantages and disadvantages of such delivery systems as optical reflective disc players and direct-read-after-write disc recorders are described. Examples of the use of interactive videodisc in on-the-job training and instruction are provided. Because few such programs are available, the next three sections elaborate a systematic process for designing, producing, and implementing video training materials. The design section follows the five steps of the Instructional Systems Development process (analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation). The topic of production centers around the use of the storyboard as a guideline for all production elements. Film and video production are compared. Next, major considerations in implementation are discussed: site preparation, facility requirements, teacher training, management involvement, and evaluation. The last section describes the author's production of a videodisc on machine lathe operations, a case study encompassing the stages of development, site preparation, field trials, and evaluation.
