Using Computerized Outlines in Teaching American Government.
Because writing an outline on the chalk board wastes time and space, a computer program, a videoprojector, and a standard motion picture screen were used to outline a lecture to a large history class. PC-Outline is an outline program for IBM-compatible microcomputers which aids in processing outlines by inserting Roman numerals, letters, and Arabic numbers automatically. A special advantage is the program's ability to hide and then show lettered headings under a Roman numeral, with a single keystroke. PC-Outline features MacIntosh-like pull-down menus, and a nearly full-featured word processing program for editing and printing the outline. Six figures demonstrate different screens used during the lecture and the capabilities of the software. A photocopy of an article on PC-Outline from a computer journal is appended. (APG)
