Effectiveness of Interactive Videodisc Training: A Comprehensive Review. The Monitor Report Series.
DeBloois, Michael; And Others
This report focuses on and suggests ways of using instructional technology to provide better education/training delivery systems, especially the use of interactive videodiscs. The first chapter discusses the need for technology-based training; describes the computer interface components, functions, and characteristics of interactive videodisc systems; considers the theoretical principles involved in designing instruction to enhance learning; provides a historical perspective on the development of interactive videodiscs including the names of companies that were forerunners in the field; and lists current interactive videodisc manufacturers. Citing information from an extensive literature review of conceptual reports and experimental studies, the second chapter discusses future instructional uses of interactive videodiscs; the purchasing and integration of hardware components into workable systems; and the development and pilot testing of software programs. The chapter concludes with five general statements about interactive videodisc systems. The discussion of instructional design for adult learners in the third chapter includes information on the learning process and four phases of development peculiar to adults. The last chapter summarizes the potential uses of interactive instruction and notes factors that may inhibit its use in education. A list of the literature cited is provided. (DJR)
